The 100 Day Reality Challenge

Dear Sir:
You will be coming to our town on February 12, 2009 to pay tribute to our "first citizen", Abraham Lincoln. It is so fitting and right.

I am a teacher at Iles Elementary School who totally believes in this President. I believe in your plan to call people into service. I believe in your ability to mobilize people on a soul level to reach out to one another. I believe you wear that mantle of greatness shared by Lincoln, Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And I believe you have what it takes to create lasting peace.

Elijah Iles was one of Mr. Lincoln;s dear friends, and at Iles School we honor the tradition of honesty, integrity and service. We have over 21 different nationalities represented in our student population. We are an inner city, urban school. Yet we rank 7th in the state when comparing test scores. But, dear sir, it is not the scores that set us apart. It is not the genius of every single student. It is our desire to create peace, work for justice.

Through the O Ambassador Program, and The International Baccalaureate Program, we are creating the change we want to see. We would like to be the first school to formally answer your call to pledge our service.

Our site on
oambassadors.org
will give you information on this innovative and beneficial school program.

Today, 2-3-09, our student's received personal letters from Yoko Ono, and our school was featured on her web site at

imaginepeace.com

(Iles School/ Yoko's Chair)

Sir, this isn't about me. It's not about our students.It's about a grassroots movement gaining momentum at exponential speed. I am one teacher. We are one school. But with you, Oprah, and Yoko Ono, I am convinced we can inspire hundreds or thousands to act similarly. My intention is for Oprah, Michelle and the girls, and Yoko Ono to come together to inspire thousands of grade school children to become the change they want to see. Please join us in creating this event.

Thank you for your time, and all you are doing to make me proud to be an American.
Sincerely,
Sherry Frachey
