WHEN BARACK TOOK OFFICE IN 2009
HE WAS PUT TO A TEST
THE WORLD DIDN’T KNOW IT AT THE TIME
THAT WE HAD CHOSE THE BEST
HE KNEW IT WOULD NOT BE EASY
TO ACHIEVE MOST OF HIS GOALS
THERE WOULD ALWAYS BE A STUMBING BLOCK
KNOW MATTER WHAT ROUTE HE CHOSE
YET HE HAS ACCOMPLISH SO MUCH
BEING UNDER ALL THAT PRESSURE
WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT OUR PRESIDENT
HE IS SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL
HE WANTS NO KIDS LEFT BEHIND
WHAT DOES THAT SAY TO YOU
HE NOT ONLY CARES ABOUT HIS KIDS
HE CARES ABOUT OURS TOO
The personal letter from the White House, thanked Mary for her thoughtful words, and stated how each letter The President receives from Americans like her reminds him of what is best for the Country, and these messages motivate him to continue working to ensure that spirit is reflected in our Government.
