The Honorable President Barack Obama:

Encouragement from the Middle East


    Calls were made to all Middle Eastern UN Missions on the day President Barack Obama gave his first public TV appearance, January 27th, 2009.    

    From those few Ambassadors available on short notice, these are their immediate, personal responses back to you, President Obama.  This is one more small step, a supportive answering to the opening of the hand to “the Muslim World”.

    Deep gratitude to those Ambassadors who gave their trust, courage, and time, not only for us, but the world.  

    Much thanks to cousin Bill Donovan for the maps within.

    I keep this up, for it is a reminder of the hopes that were campaigned for and that many of us still have.   Feet to the fire.
