It wasn’t us – not me, not my wife.
I made 42 telephone calls on your behalf, to North Carolina. She made 25 to Virginia.
Together, we chipped in maybe $150 to your campaign.
So it really wasn’t us: It was tens of thousands of us, hundreds of thousands of us, fed up with divisive politics, broken promises, morally bankrupt leaders, the widening gap between the haves-too-much and haves-too-little of our nation.
The American dream was becoming an American nightmare, and you were the wake-up call.
We don’t need to tell you what to do. But we hope you will do it – bring this diverse country together, inspire its people, nudge it forward, bring it respect and honor.
Things are so bad, it’s a tall order for any president. But we believe in the possible, and judging by your words, so do you.
And please, be careful out there.
Warmest regards and congratulations —
David and Bonnie
