I’m writing you an open letter, because it looks like I might become President, someday.
You’re laughing now, but no one ever thinks I’m gonna do any of the things I’ve done. No one from my childhood ever thought I’d get a boyfriend.
No one from my small towns of Hays, Kansas and Folsom, Louisiana probably thought I’d make a million dollars as a Hollywood screenwriter or start a successful blog read by 124 Countries.
How could they have known when I didn’t even know?
Point, is, anything can happen. According to my current Klout score, I’m influential in “writing, photography and unicorns.”
I’m also a Mother and that, as you know, is a powerful thing.
So let’s talk about everyday folks.
1.) Do not throw Social Security under the bus, those of us who have worked for it want it when we get old, dammit!
We paid in a lot of money and we better see a return when we’re gumming pudding.
2.) Children are the most important resource, so clean up the f*cking schools and pay the teachers better.
3.) Please take a look at wasteful spending, for example, the potentially fatal condition my son has, Progressive Infantile Scoliosis, has a non-surgical CURE in plaster Mehta/EDF casts, but most orthopedic surgeons are surgery happy and don’t even practice the better method.
The repeated surgeries cost well over a million dollars per child, the surgeries can cause excruciating pain and lifetime deformity, while the casts can cure our babies before preschool.
Please put Infantile Scoliosis on the National Well Baby Checklist.
God Bless you and God Bless The United States of America.
