President Barack Obama delivered his last State of the Union Tuesday night,which he spoke on curing cancer, our healthcare system and more! While some Republicans tweeted their dislike of the emotionally driven speech, some people were deeply touched by it.
One of those people was legendary, Mexican guitarist, Carlos Santana. You might remember Santana from the R&B song featuring The Product G&B, called “Maria Maria.” Santana wrote a very genuine open letter via Facebook to the president expressing his gratitude for Obama’s leadership and blessings upon the Obama family. He even threw a shot at Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump.
Read the entire letter below. What do you think of Santana’s letter?
Dearest Mr. President Obama,
I witnessed your speech last night. I am deeply inspired, encouraged and profoundly grateful for your words. Your consciousness soars with clarity and divine purpose. Your articulated your views, subjects and comments with compassion. You made me feel how blessed we are to share life with your leadership. Even more than any other President I have witnessed (including JFK). Your words of spirit and global healing, unity and harmony for the betterment of the world….not just the USA. I pray for your continued safety for you and your family. Regarding Mr. Trump….I remember when I was a child living in Tijuana…I often crossed the border to visit the San Diego Zoo. I would hear loud screams and commotion in the distance. As I came closer to the sound, I noticed everyone was staring at an ape in a glass cage. The ape was staring back at the crowd that gathered. With an angry look of disgust, the ape defecated in his hand and threw it at the crowd. This is what I hear when Mr Trump speaks. He lacks consciousness as well as integrity. The Republicans and Mr Trump are selling hate and fear. That is the opposite of what our Country stands for. Let’s go forward with light and love into the future. Global Peace is within our grasp in this lifetime. Pull humanity up, take the high road and look at the aerial view. Peace on Earth now, not later.
With deep respect and admiration,
