Dear Mr G. W. Bush,

Excuse me sir, but have you taken a serious look at your country recently? In the name of anti-war activism, people are attempting to burn flags, and harrassing poor employees of Starbucks, The Gap, and other major chain stores having nothing to do with the war in Iraq. In the name of pro-military troupes, people are driving their jeeps into pools of water in your own city, and worse, telling any foreign looking folks to "go home". These are ridiculous things occurring on both ends of the spectrum, all because we stand as a nation so divided, we're starting to war with each other.

Sir, this is exactly your responsibility as leader of our people to work with. Ignoring that the dissention exists is not dealing with it, it only serves to make it worse. Telling us that we should follow your lead without question is also counter-productive, it only makes it look like arrogance on your part about our inability to think critically; further it stands against the principles we were indocrinated with growing up.

So, I implore you Mr President, please take some time to start to look at your own country and try to work with the people from both sides. Talk with us, not at us, join us, understand us. Then you could truly represent us, and we could feel more at ease feeling represented.

Thank you.
