Barak Obama wants to know our stories, our hopes and concerns; get a free commemorative sticker too!

From Change.gov:
An American Moment

The story of the campaign and this historic moment has been your story. It is about the great things we can do when we come together around a common purpose. The story of bringing this country together as a healed and united nation will be led by President-Elect Obama, but written by you. The millions of you who built this campaign from the ground up, and echoed your call for the change you wanted to see implemented by the Obama Administration - this process of setting up that new government is about you.

This transition is about selecting a new staff and agenda that will help reclaim the American dream and bring about positive lasting change to this country. In order to do that, we want to hear from you.

Tell us your story and the issues that matter most to you. Share with us your concerns and hopes – the policies you want to see carried out in the next four years.

"I ask you to believe - not just in my ability to bring about change, but in yours. I know this change is possible…because in this campaign, I have had the privilege to witness what is best in America. I've seen it in lines of voters that stretched around schools and churches; in the young people who cast their ballot for the first time, and those not so young folks who got involved again after a very long time. I've seen it in the workers who would rather cut back their hours than see their friends lose their jobs; in the neighbors who take a stranger in when the floodwaters rise; in the soldiers who re-enlist after losing a limb. I've seen it in the faces of the men and women I've met at countless rallies and town halls across the country, men and women who speak of their struggles but also of their hopes and dreams."

So what do you say? Let's tell him about our struggles, about the issues that matter most to us, and even let our minds run free to envision what could be, to tell him of our hopes and dreams and of the policies we want to see carried out in the next four years. Policies for a nation that takes care of it's sick and infirm instead of allowing them to wither and die, and maybe even for a nation that goes so far as to PREVENT illness and infirmity whenever possible. Couldn't hurt. Might help. If you feel like sharing please feel free to send a copy of what you've written to sherril@theiciexperience.org. I'll even post it on The ICIE if you want to give me permission to do so.
