To the Editor:
This section of the U.S. Constitution describes the duty of the President to give a State of the Union address.
“He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient …”. President’s Obama’s State of the Union address vehemently and metaphorically challenged all Americans to be citizens of action to make America “a more perfect union” in very precise language. His unifying message supported with real citizens as examples of what America represents to the world community was rich in history and in the spiritual essence of America’s core values and unique identity as a world leader.
The citizens identified in the balcony were a true quilt of America. The pragmatic recommendations to provide individual retirement options to average working Americans, to increase the minimum wage to a livable wage, to promote excellence in educational opportunities and to move America forward based on the common core values that we share demonstrates his commitment and resolve. Thank you, President Obama, for reminding us of what it means to be an American.
