Just wondering

A lot of people say to me that is does not make a difference if you write the President or not, but I want to write anyway. I just wanted to tell you that I worry about America and what is going to happen to this country The days of being patriotic seem to be dwindling and as I see it, you hold the key to the emotions of this country.
I remember my father telling me that our country was the only country in the world where you are guaranteed the right to be free. The right to express yourself and to become what you dream. What I am wondering is what happened to our America. If you express out loud your beliefs you can lose your rights. If you disagree with a lifestyle you are labeled. I would like you to give back to America the rights past down by our forefathers.
President Obama I pray for you and for your decisions to make everyday. I did not vote for you but I respect the office you hold and the fact you are my president. Please know that this American watches and cares what happens.

Thank you,
Alice Campbell
