When I opened my mail earlier this week I discovered an invitation. The invitation was from the Presidential Inaugural Committee. It was addressed to Dr. Linda Erlich and it was an official invitation to attend the Inauguration of Barack H. Obama as President of the United States of America and Joseph R. Biden as Vice President of the United States of America.
I have just been over the moon ever since I opened it. The only reason I can think of that I received this was because I sent The President a copy of my doctoral dissertation. Yes, I supported him, but I did not donate tons of money or anything like that.
I was hoping to paste a photo of the invitation but I cannot figure out a way to do it.
I am just so overjoyed that he will continue to be our President after Monday!
People I know who donated did not get what I got. Also members of my family have gotten invitations to previous inaugurations. Democratic one, of course. They attended President Kennedy's and President Clinton's. So I am not sure mine is because of my small donation and purchase of campaign ephemera.
Ignorance and the inability or refusal to think critically are the enemies of freedom
