A Letter to Reverend Al Sharpton

Greetings Al Sharpton – I have observed you for many moons now and today here’s a question for you as you fight what some call the “Good Fight.” “Wouldn’t you like to be a leader with solutions – in other words wouldn’t you prefer being the solution rather than the problem?  Below you’ll find my answer to that question.

My answer to that is I want to be part of a positive solution that restores our Nation as One Nation Under God With Liberty and Justice for all. Knowing that you’re a Baptist minister make me believe in my heart of hearts that down deep you want the same thing

Isn’t it time to give up the “Good Fight” whatever that is – none of us know anymore? Wouldn’t you like to be a leader who fights for African Americans, Hispanics, Caucasians and all Americans in finding solutions to restore our Nation, which is tottering on a very weak foundation as we speak?

As I mentioned to Maxine Waters and the Black Caucus, it’s alright to agree to disagree on issues, but let’s hone the art of communication and problem solving once again.  Let’s be respectful of one another and join hands to bring solutions to the table.

Al, I believe we need to can the name tags at this time, because whether we’re Republicans, Democrats, Liberals or Progressives we can work together regardless of race, religion or political preference. It’s time to turn our eyes and hearts to our Country; it’s time to unite for a common cause to restore our Nation back to a Government of the people, by the people and for the people.

Martin Luther King said, I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.”

Billy Graham’s vision for America is one of “peace and unity. Spiritual awakening would be No. 1,” he says. I think many people are praying that that will take place. And I think God will answer that prayer.”

Two wonderful leaders who were brothers working together for a common cause – “Little Mike” said “Had it not been for the ministry of my good friend Dr. Billy Graham, my work in the civil rights movement would not have been as successful as it has been.”

These two world leaders laid aside race and political preference; they believed that all men are created equal and their guidance and direction came from “God.”  So what say you, Al Sharpton lets walk away from politics and walk back to the people (Americans).

Let’s lay aside our differences so we can be the solution, not the problem.  Here is my email address and I hope you have time to contact me in the near future.  [email protected]

May God Bless America
