Tonight, I sent my first e-mail to our new leader. If you’d like to join me, click here.
Dear President Elect Obama,
Words cannot express my joy over your election. Thank you for your service to our country. I’m looking forward to your leadership.
Regarding the new puppy — I’m writing to ask you to please adopt a pet from an animal shelter. This would set an amazing example which could feasibly save the lives of hundreds of worthy pets waiting to be rescued.
Thank you for your time.
Ready to do my part in this great democracy,
Los Angeles, CA
UPDATE: This morning I wrote to The Humane Society, the ASPCA, The Animal Rescue Site and ARME (Animal Rescue Media Education) asking all of them to encourage their members to write to President-Elect Obama on this issue. I’m feeling a little bit like a grass root today. Go Democracy! What shall we nag the government about tomorrow?
