Fourth of July in Washingto D.C.

Dear President Obama,
I am hoping you can help. My wife and I are going to be in Washington D.C. for the Fourth of July Celebration this year, since this is something we both have wanted to do ( Bucket List) and I was hoping by some stroke of luck we could get passes to sit close. My wife is a retired History and AP Government Teacher, having taught for 41 years at South Houston High School and is an Honored Facility Member. I am a Viet Nam Era Vet and will be retiring from The Pasadena Independent School Dist. in Dec. after being a School Bus Driver. As I stated before, this has always been a dream of ours to be in Washington D.C. on the 4th of July.
I know you are very busy at this time but I was wanting to surprise my wife since she doesn't think this will happen.
Thank you for your time and may God Bless you, your family and The United State4s of America.

Gordon D. Reed

Verry sweet but.....Not much of a chance. I can imagine how many requests the Pres. Receives. I don't think this is his decision anyway, I am sure there is a committee that sets up meetings and such. Another individual who has no idea the scope of his duties.
