an email “toward” President Obama

14 Mar

Obama Bethlehem 1

Hearing that President Obama is scheduled to visit the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem next week, I sent him an email.

Mr. President –

While you are in Bethlehem, please keep your ears open to hear anything about the Cremisan Valley in the Beit Jala area of Bethlehem. There is a “win-win” opportunity in the Cremisan Valley for both the Palestinians and the Israelis. Adding in how it would be a “win” situation for you and for the United States, there is in the Cremisan Valley a “win-win-win” opportunity. My prayers will be for your safety and your success, especially during your visit to Bethlehem (and Beit Jala). You are a brave man, in more ways than one, for committing yourself to visit Bethlehem and the Church of the Nativity.

I don’t have his personal email address, of course. So, I guess I sent it “toward” him, through the White House website, realistically assuming that it might not ever “arrive” to him. But who knows? I did mark it “important.” That should get the attention of his staff, don’t you think, and make them want to rush it right to his desk in the Oval Office or take it upstairs to him and interrupt his breakfast? I added my telephone number, too, just in case he wants to call. Drat! I gave them the one at the office. I should have given them my cell phone number.
