Dear Mr. President.
I am sure that you are familiar with the path that we have been on since our coming to these shores: The creation the first U.S. Constitution,1789, The struggle to eliminate the legality of slavery from the document in 1865, the ongoing struggle to guarantee freedom and equality for all.
I mention these as examples of what can be reached when we are willing to strive for the common good.
This nation is far from a perfect manifestation of the Principles which are enshrined in our Constitution. “We the People of the United States….” However, we are continually striving toward those Principles; even though we face setbacks again and again, we do and will move forward.
What President Lincoln said about the United States it true of the United Nations. I suggest that we, The U.S., initiate an effort within the United Nations to create a Constitution for the United Nations of this planet. The present document is not working in the same way that the Articles of Confederation did not work. In order to free all of the People from the mire of antiquated customs and laws, to “form a more perfect Union” we need to have a government of for and by the people which puts the Principles of freedom, equality and dignity in front of any individual nation’s laws.
I understand that this is a huge undertaking. I know that it can be intellectualized to death. But we the people have always achieved through the Heart. The heart, “the bridge of the worlds” knows that this is the path that will lead to Equality and Freedom for all.
Lots of love, the measure of understanding,
