Dear Mr. President

 

There have been great men
who have led our proud country
time and again
to keep Her free
and on course
against any force
that has threatened all
that She stands tall
for since independence won,
preventing what could be undone
that has been sustained by
asking Congress' consent
on orders that meant
many of our brave might die...
even in the face
of what others might say
and losing the next race
to remain the leader of the USA.

And while a look back in history is the test
for who is among the best
in all that was done
by each one,
it is what I have seen you
accomplish and hold true
that makes me so proud
to call you Mr. President, aloud.

Author's Note:

"Dear Mr. President" is meant to envision the U.S. President(s) who ... viewer admires most ... Nor is it about the political aspects, but about what a leader of the USA did ... thinking of what was best to safeguard America and fellow citizens against future attacks and the difficult decisions to send troops in harm's way.

And while every President must deal with political consequences, it should never impact decisions that weakens America's ability to protect and react against national security issues ... like Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and George W. Bush had to face daily during their tenures after devastating, deadly attacks to our beloved USA homeland.

Then there is all that President Abraham Lincoln had to deal with during the civil war!

Personal Note:

My youngest son was serving in the Marine Corps when the attacks on September 11, 2001 occurred ... and served in Iraq during 2003. Presidential decisions become even more important when they impact a family member, who is ordered into harm's way ... even if ... it is willingly done with extreme pride and resolve.
