An open note to the citizens of the US

Hello.  I understand that you haven’t traveled much, nor have you taken the time to study other cultures.  Let me give you a little lesson that I think you need to learn.

When someone in the Middle East insults your president, by throwing shoes, he’s not only insulting the president.  He is insulting YOU.

I really wish that you would take your heads out of the sand and think for a minute.  The Iraqi people are better off with Saddam Hussein dead.  He was an EVIL man who killed people without thought.  

STOP BELIEVING WHAT THE MEDIA IS TELLING YOU.  

The man who threw the shoe doesn’t only hate George W Bush.  He hates you.  If you consider yourself patriotic, don’t glamorize an insult to our entire country.  

But hey–you can do what you want.  This is America.

    Thanks.

    I don’t know that I didn’t intend for it to have that tone. So many people blindly believe what they’re told when it’s not the whole truth, myself included.
