"I love my country,
sometimes even more than it loves me."
Dear Mr. President Elect,
I am just a small town country
girl that you have never heard of and whose voice you will
never hear. You will probably never see this. It probably
won't be shared enough or even at all. It may as well be
gone as soon as I hit publish.
All of that said, I am going to
use my small voice to tell you what I think and feel, what I
hope comes of this.
I hope you prove me wrong. I
hope you do make America great again as you say you will.
America needs saving.
I hope you close the great divide
that we have suffered due to the hatred and r.ácism,
that you yourself are

blatant disregard and disrespect while promoting
culture in this Nation. I am an asset to this country, as are
all of our strong willed women.
You are not the type of person
that I would have ever imagined becoming a
Frankly you are a far cry from
the role model I thought I would call a president when
explaining to my children who to look up to. I'm begging
for you to prove me wrong.
I fear what you can do in just
four minutes. I fear for our military families. They never know
what wars they may be thrown into because a world leader baits
you in a tweet.
I fear for our recovering
economy, that was doing well under a great man.
In short, you have some big shoes
to fill Mr. President Elect. I have mounds of fears and
concerns where you are involved in America's
I honestly think America made a
mistake by choosing you.
I will pray for you, like every
good American should. I pray you show me that you can be a man
that we as Americans can be proud of. Mostly I pray you prove
