An American nobody

Dear Mr. Sudakov, President Putin and the People of Russia,

My name is Bridgette.

I live in the United States of America.

I work a lot, raise my daughter on my own, smoke too much, talk too loud, wear my pajamas all day when I am home, and love staying at nice hotels when I have some extra money.

I am a nobody. No one special and not very important to anyone but my dog most days.

I also a nobody who is not afraid to stand up when people like John McCain and Butch McKeon falsely claim to speak on my behalf so please allow me to speak for myself.

When we heard of President Obama's "red line", American's fought hard against our leaders in Washington, DC. According to our congressmen and women, their phone's were flooded with calls 10 to 1 against any action in Syria, with the exception of humanitarian aid. I believe the American voice has never been so strong and so loud so our politicians and President had no choice but to stand down.

President Putin, who is obviously very sharp, saw the strength and the rationale of our people in action and very respectfully addressed us personally via the NYT. Despite DC's phony posturing, we got it. We understand his comment on exceptionalism. It is good we all strive for exceptionalism, but it is never good to think ourselves exceptional.
For President Putin's respect and intelligence, I am grateful.
