Dear Mr. Obama:
I am a patriotic American. I love our country and have a deep appreciation for our heritage. I am grateful for those who have fought and sacrificed to maintain our freedom.

As a young man, I worked in a small, family-owned meat market. Our primary business was to cut and wrap meat from livestock local farmers raised, slaughtered and brought to us.

Georgia Baptists have been in partnership with Bill, serving alongside him and under his leadership among the people in Appalachia since Appalachian Regional Ministries first began.
