Dear President Obama: We’re hurting

Dear President Obama,

I had a pizza delivered to my house tonight (an extravagance, but I’m going to be away for most of next week, and I don’t want to leave too much food in the frig).

Anyhoo, a really, really nice man delivered my pizza and diet Pepsi.

We talked about you, how glad we both are that you are our new president, and how we agree that Mr. Bush made a mess of things.

Mr. Pizza Delivery Man asked me, “Do you think Obama can make things better? How long do you think it’s gonna take?”

Because, President Obama, this man and his family are h-u-r-t-i-n-g.

The pizza delivery job is his 2nd job, and he’s going to get laid off from his primary job.

“I just want President Obama to know, we are hurting out here, and we’re scared,” this lovely man told me.

I just wanted to pass this along to you, President Obama.

  1. Oh that made me sad. Meanwhile Bush sits back in retirement in luxury. Not right at all.


  2. My heart hurts for the pizza delivery man and others who in similar situations.We are all so hopeful.


  3. I hope help comes soon but I think it might take a while and yet I do believe it will come, great letter Beth,,keeping the faith in Kentucky.


  4. That’s sad…the casualties of a greedy, waylaid governement…
