My wife and I deeply appreciate how busy you are as a woman, mom, wife, daughter, compassionate advocate, results-oriented activist, author, thinker, visionary, and leader. Please forgive us if we left anything out that is important to you. We hope you will take a few moments to read this brief letter. Thank you in advance.
History has a voice. Unfortunately, we typically hear the voice of history when it has already spoken. The future has a voice. Oftentimes, we struggle to discern the clarity of the call when we are submerged in daily life. The present has a voice. The challenge today is that the voice of the present is complicated by a barrage of voices demanding our attention.
If there is one thing that is clear to us, it is that our nation, The United States of America, is in trouble. The nature of these challenges are multi-faceted and too numerous to recount here. Furthermore, the definition and priori of the challenges in our nation are being redefined and rearranged by Republican Party leadership that has lost its way.
Clearly, the Democratic Party is struggling to nominate a candidate that will be capable of defeating Donald Trump and the toxic agenda he has unleashed on our nation, citizens, neighbors and relationships with others across the globe. We have enough history with this fellow. The voice of the history of his administration is clear; division, denigration, fear mongering, division, debauchery and deception. The voice of the future for our nation is bellowing an unavoidably audible concern for our current trajectory. This brings us to the present.
We beg you to announce your candidacy for President of the United States. The voices of the past, present and future have come together in a chorus: “This is your time: Now…Today.” As untimely and unsettling as this call may be for you and yours, it is a voice that cannot be discounted or diminished.
We need you Michelle. Your country needs you. We only hope that you and your family will give this your most serious consideration.
Bill and Jacki Dahl
