A "Letter to the Editor" on Kerry

For this post, I would like to share with you a letter to the editor written by Joshua Birkenhauer, published April 18, 2005, in the Palladium-Item, of Richmond, Indiana:
John Kerry lost the election to a wartime incumbent president who unfairly portrayed him as an unpatriotic ultra-liberal veteran. He was smeared by swift boat veterans who were later discredited on every major news outlet. The majority of the public did not know the real John Kerry because of these false accusations.

The real John Kerry is a patriotic veteran who lives and breathes for his country. He is not the most liberal senator or dishonorably fought for the country. The crewmates Kerry put his life on the line for witnessed with their very own eyes his heroic move to save his fellow solider. The veterans who never fought with Kerry made libel accusations against him. People believed he was only one voice testifying in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in reality he was a passionate voice for over a thousand veterans who could not fight for themselves. In the Senate, he continued the fight by helping out those in need. He was for the hardworking citizens of America, peace and prosperity. He fought to make sure every child has healthcare and the opportunity for a great education.

The nation did not realize these things, but it did not stop him. Recently, he proposed a bill to help out the military by increasing benefits and strengthening the military force. He battled hard to help the environment. He fulfilled his promises and will continue to fight for America.

Thank you Joshua! I couldn't have said it any better. But those of the Swift Boat ilk don't really know Senator Kerry do they? Senator Kerry is back on his feet and fighting for all of us! America is fortunate to have leaders like Kerry in these difficult times. And John Kerry is lucky to have supporters like you who write letters on his behalf!
