10 Letters

On the morning of one of the most bitter and divisive Presidential elections in history, it’s nice to be reminded of the good things that surround the Presidency.

I don’t know if all presidents do this or if it was specifically instituted by President Obama, but did you know that he requests 10 letters to read everyday (that he’s in Washington) before bed? (I learned this on the latest episode of 99% Invisible, pictured above.) That’s 10 letters potentially from everyday people telling them about their fears, their joys, their frustrations, and their sadness.

I can’t pinpoint exactly why, but that gives me at least a little hope heading into this historic day.
