Dear Mr. President,
As you know, we live in America, a democracy. And in living in this democracy, the people have a responsibility to participate in things both civic and political. If we did not, this democracy would not work and America would not be the same. It is up to the citizens to speak up for what we believe to be able to help maintain this wonderful country.
I write to you to request that we create a holiday for Billy Graham. I feel that Mr. Graham very much deserves a holiday in his honor for all his influences on America. He has performed countless sermons to about 80 million people and millions more over radio or television. For about 3 million people, he helped by guiding them in their decisions to join Christ and has given confidence to countless more Christians. Billy Graham, as you may know, has helped at presidential inaugurations and presidential funerals. He has been comfort in times of need and even influenced Christians during the civil rights movement by stating his belief that all people of America should be treated equally, including black people.
The most honorable characteristic of Billy Graham is the fact that he does all that he does simply because he believes it is the right, Christianly thing to do. He has definitely contributed a lot to the Christian society and it would probably be very different without him, seeing as he was a major factor of developing contemporary Christianity.
Not only is the Christian community different, but possibly also the African American society. During the civic dispute about the rights and freedoms of black Americans, Graham invited Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. over to discuss the issue. He made it clear that he was in favor of equal rights. This set an example for Christians and could possibly have been a huge factor in many decisions.
As a Christian, I am personally grateful to…...

...President Barack Hussein Obama President Barack Obama is one of the most exciting presidential election candidates in many years. It was just as much a strikingly symbolic moment in the evolution of the nation’s fraught racial history, a breakthrough that would have seemed unthinkable just two years ago. President Obama is a historical figure in American History because, he became the first successful African-American to become President, and he impacted society in a positive way. Barack Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961, to Barack Obama, Sr. and Ann Dunham. His parents were divorced when he was only two and the absence of his father greatly affected him. After high school, Obama studied at Occidental College in Los Angeles for two years. He then transferred to Columbia University in New York, graduating in 1983 with a degree in political science. He then entered Harvard Law School in 1988. The next year, he met Michelle Robinson, an associate at Sidley & Austin law firm in Chicago. On October 3, 1992, he and Michelle were married. They moved to Kenwood, on Chicago's South Side, and welcomed two daughters: Malia born 1998 and Sasha born 2001. In February 2007, Obama made headlines when he announced his candidacy for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. He was locked in a tight battle with former first lady and then, U.S. Senator from New York, Hillary Clinton. On June 3, 2008, however, Obama became the presumptive nominee for the Democratic......

Letter to Mr. President

...Dear Mr. President The arts and humanities have became increasingly important part of everyone's life, especially nowadays, when world is saturated with globalization and new technologies. That is why the arts should be supported not only by authorities, but first of all by ourselves. Pictures, music, theaters, books, films gift people pleasure and satisfaction. If these items do not exist, human beings will be transformed into robots or zombie. The arts and humanities fuel our souls. Music is the most beautiful voice of the soul, poetry is its sense while pictures is its face. Barack Obama, the President of the United States of America affirms :”A power of words and music helps us to appreciate a beauty, but also to understand the pain. ”. Definitely it is true. The arts and humanities save mankind from terrible afflictions, in the hardest times, find a way to the heart of every person and sow grains of love, kindness and peace in it. Moreover the arts and humanities are immense and mysterious source of beauty, love and inspiration. Every person is unique and talented. God created us with imaginations and feelings. Therefore, we should make efforts and find ourselves, recognize ourselves in each other. Joshua Bennett, James Earl Jones are great examples for us. They have posted a personal unique imprint in history. They persuade us to join them and make even a little contribution to the art and humanities. American nation could be proud of them, proud of all artists,......

...American Government Ulysses S. Grant Becoming the eighteenth President of the United States is an honor to me for many reasons. The history of my life, the trials and tribulations I have been put through has made me the man, and the intelligent, well-rounded President that I am today. You only have one life to live and this is the life I have conquered. On April 27, 1822 in a town known as Point Pleasant Ohio, I was born to my parents, Jesse Root Grant and Hannah Simpson, as Hiram Ulysses S. Grant. Following behind would be my siblings, Samuel Simpson Grant, Clara Rachel Grant, and Virginia Paine Grant. As I became older, my family and I moved to Georgetown, Ohio where my father pursued his business as a tanner. We lived on a simple farm where I preformed my share of chores due to the fact that the tannery did not interest me much. I developed considerable skills with handling horses while living on the family farm. In 1839, my father held an appointment for the United States Military Academy located in West Point, New York and pressured me to attend. Even though I had no interest in the military, I figured I would attend since going back to school was not an importance at the time. In 1843 I graduated from USMA ranking twenty-first in my class of thirty-nine pupils and gained a reputation at the academy as a fearless and expert horseman with an astonishing knowledge of mathematics. Upon graduating, I was assigned as a brevet second lieutenant to the fourth U.S......

...Abby Keller 28 de Marzo 2012 President Barak Obama The White House 
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
 Washington, DC 20500 Estimado señor Obama, Me gustaría empezar felicitando a usted en sus esfuerzos en estos tiempos difíciles. Nuestro país está pasando por muchos momentos difíciles y que tomó un trabajo muy difícil. A pesar de muchos otros problemas que enfrenta nuestro país, hay uno que creo que necesita más atención: la educación. Este es un gran problema que tiene muchos lados. Me gustaría presentar mis sugerencias y opiniones desde la perspectiva de un estudiante que ha pasado por el sistema de educación pública. Primero, es una lastima que nos falten profesores apasionados. Los maestros en este país son infravalorados y mal pagados. Creo que muchas personas en nuestro clima político actual subestimar el poder de los educadores. Es importante que estas personas que están dando forma a nuestras futuras generaciones reciban un pago adecuado. Tambien, creo que el precio de la universidad es demasiado cara. Es malo que muchos estudiantes se gradúan con una deuda abrumadora. Creo que la universidad es muy importante, pero creo que la universidad es un privilegio, no un derecho. La universidad no es para todos. Creo que muchos estudiantes se les dice que tienen que ir a la universidad con el fin de sobrevivir en el mundo. Esto se está convirtiendo la universidad en un negocio en lugar de una institución de aprendizaje. Creo que este es un factor que...

Letter to President

...Dear Mr. President, I think woman are forgetting about the past and how it used to be and their taking advantage. It’s important to talk about it more and know the issues and reasons that led with actions taking. The government is scary people and could change up whenever they want because they have the power but it’s up to us to protect our rights and maintain the freedom we have. I know this is not new information to you. I’m writing to ask that we declare a new national holiday for Elizabeth Blackwell because she helped give women the rights we have today. I know we do talk about her a little bit in school but outside of that it doesn’t come up. I think we should have a woman’s rights day on the day the rights were granted to celebrate her contributions to that cause in the world over time. She was the first woman in America to receive her medical degree. She served as a pioneer for women in the medical profession and promoted the education of women in the medical profession through lectures and by opening her own medical college for women. She realized that there were not many career opportunities for women other than that of a teacher, which typically ended in marriage. She decided to become a credentialed doctor, even though there were no precedents for female students in medical schools. She is a big example to woman because even though nobody especially no man wanted her around in the medical field but she didn’t care she did what she had to do and graduated......

Letter to President of College for Group

...May 5, 2016 Dr. John O’Brien, NHCC President North Hennepin Community College 7411 85th Avenue North Brooklyn Park, MN 55445 Dear Dr. O’Brien: We are Diverse Universe, a group of four North Hennepin Community College students that are interested in establishing a Health and Wellness club here at NHCC. The club’s name is Sante’, which means Health. The purpose of this club is to work in concert with NHCC to undergird its mission in the development of the whole student. Providing an environment where students may learn behavior conducive to creating healthy life style choices, giving them the necessary tools in which to enrich their minds body and spirit. An Application Form has been submitted to both the Student Senate and Donna Hinrichs proposing a club that would convene once a week, offering health techniques, and practices for stress management, strength training, yoga and healthy eating workshops. NHCC does not currently have an organization focused on promoting health and wellness. We will model other campuses that have health and wellness initiatives and their level of success. Diverse Universe recognizes that healthy faculty, staff and students benefit the campus and that there is a correlation between student physical and mental health and academic achievement. The health and wellness of students can result in fewer class absence, improved retention and more effective study practices, and work productivity. Benefits to both faculty and staff......

Letter to Company President Concerning Accounting for Referral Credits

...Dear Mr. President, This letter is in response to your request for information on how to account for the Referral Credit offered to existing Runway Discount customers. Both US GAAP and IFRS provide similar guidance on accounting for the credit offered for attracting new customers. After researching US GAAP, code section 605-50-25-3 describes the Referral Credit offered by Runway Discount as a voluntary sales incentive that becomes redeemable as a result of a single transaction. The cost of the Referral Credit should be recognized at the latter of the following situations: The date at which the related revenue was recognized or the date at which the sales incentive was offered. In your situation, most Referral Credits will be recognized at the date of receiving the related revenue. Most customers will not use the $25 credit the date issued, but rather use it at their convenience. In addition to researching US GAAP, the IFRS provided similar guidance on accounting for the $25 Referral Credit. International Accounting Standard 18 paragraph 19 offers guidelines that match corresponding revenue with expenses. Runway Discount provides the existing customer incentive due to a specific transaction by a referred new customer. With the credit being a specified amount of $25, the IFRS states that the liability must be recognized with the corresponding revenue. In conclusion, the Referral Credit offered by Runway Discount should be accounted for under US GAAP until adopting......

...I think George W. Bush was the worst President we ever had. My reasons begin with the 2000 election where he lost the popular vote and through manipulation and party tinkering was appointed President when Al Gore decided he no longer wanted to be part of the drawn out farce that had become the 2000 election in which he actually won the popular vote. Mr. Bush and his administration missed or ignored signs and warnings leading up to 9/11/2001 one of the worst days in our nation’s history. Following the attack on 9/11 Mr. Bush and his administration were obsessed with going to war first to Afghanistan where we knew Bin Laden was hiding and eventually losing interest in capturing or killing Bin Laden and instead focusing on an elaborate plan to trick the American population through lies and deceit into a war with Iraq, A country who had not attacked us and who had nothing to do with 9 / 11. We were bombarded with sound bites about mushroom clouds, we were told to buy duct tape and plastic because another attack was imminent. The administration presented information to the United Nations based on intelligence that the administration knew to be flawed and in some cases utterly false, all in the effort to keep the country scared and on edge while they prepared for a war of “choice”. Mr. Bush and his administration assured the American people that the war would be quick and decisive, we would bring “Shock and Awe’ to bear. In truth while Mr. Bush was staging a photo op on board......

...Nixon was elected the 37th President of the United States (1969-1974) after previously serving as a U.S. Representative and a U.S. Senator from California. After successfully ending American fighting in Vietnam and improving international relations with the U.S.S.R. and China, he became the only President to ever resign the office, as a result of the Watergate scandal. On May 31 I had the experience to visit the Nixon Library. The Nixon Library exhibits Presidents Nixon life and career. My experience in the museum was very good interesting too I was able to learn more about this president his life and the things he did for the United States. Also, able to watch video interviews with Nixon administrator’s officials and others who played important roles in twentieth-century. I was able to distinguish many different things that president did in the past from the present. For example, many of the ads were different in the past presidents I many ads in the elections now I think that presidents don’t use that much advertising the use it but not a lot like in the past. In the Nixon library they exhibit the presidential car now the presidential car has changed its more protected for the president’s safety. Even though President Nixon resigns from office due to the Watergate scandal he had many people that were there his whole presidency for example the kids in the museum there was a section were many letters that young children wrote to him. I think that President Nixon was a very......

...religious convictions, While the clerk’s office has a governmental duty to carry out the law,” he added, “there should be a way to protect the religious freedom and conscience rights of individuals working in the office.” This is what needs to be said, we aren’t pissing off in won side nor are we throwing big rally’s trying a desperate attempt to get votes. Playing it cool and not letting any of your opponents get something on you that they can bring up later. We don’t need Trump to bring up something like “ Rubio supported breaking the law because he doesn’t agree with it.” We are not letting anyone get leverage on us and we are playing the middle ground so we wont lose votes and we can start catching Trump in the polls. And become the next President of the Untied States of America....

Letter to the President

...MAY 02, 2016 Dear Mr. President, Most people in this country are at constant battle in their minds wondering if we will remain a representative democracy. In order to maintain and thrive within our system of government, we the people as well as government officials must participate in it. we must participate both civilly and politically, meaning that we follow our civic duties as American citizens in order to remain a respected good citizen. A big chunk of people refrain from voting in elections. What people don’t seem to understand is that if we fail to participate in civil acts such as voting we gain less representation from the government which means our voices have a less of a chance of getting heard by someone in the position to make a change. I received an attachment from a friend in my email today that included a lengthy article about a young man by the name of Ryan White. Mr. White was born December 6th , 1971 in Kokomo, Indiana and was later diagnosed with HIV/AIDS December of 1984. Mr. White was expelled from school due to a petition signed by parents and staff of the school Ryan attended following his diagnosis, this led to a court case against the school board which was first denied a hearing. Once the case was accepted through the proper channels of the court the case became publically know. I believe that Ryan White should be granted a national holiday because his diagnosis of HIV/AIDS was one of the first seen in a heterosexual male out of 148 cases in the......
