Dear Mr Stewart
My Aunt Adele is 83 and a half. She’s been a practicing Buddhist/Jew* for over 30 years, and has slept at the Dali Lama’s feet. Aunt Adele went to Russia to be a clown for kids in institutions with Patch Adams. She’s taught art in college and raised two daughters. Recently her first great grandson was born.
She has one major item on her bucket list and only one item–she wants to meet you! Please Mr. Stewart could my family have tickets for your show and we’ll secretly arrange for Aunt Adele to meet with you. Please!!!
I was picked to write the letter as I have a blog and I went to the rally for sanity. As I live in South Carolina (cue the laughter) it was an amazing experience. I spent a day traveling there and a day traveling home for two nights, and one amazing day of being around people who think for themselves.
I left NY because it became so pricey, and crazy after 9/11. While I don’t regret the move, I will always be a New Yorker in my heart.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything that you have been doing for the first responders.
Thank you for being alive.
And if you decide to run for President…..
*Well she’s been Jewish for 83.5 years.
My family asked me to write a letter to Jon Stewart. I’m having some problems–if you have any suggestions! For some reason I couldn’t link or embed the 12/16/10 Jon Stewart show which is completely devoted to 9/11 first responders. For anybody who has been reading my blog for any period of time you know how important that is to me–and if the city I live in now has a memorial next year that barely mentions The World Trade Center I will film everything. It upset me to go to a memorial that was supposed to be for 9/11 but really was a warm up for the tea party rallies the next day. That was the day I knew The Tea Party was going to be a force to be reckoned with. I hadn’t been living here a year then and didn’t want to make waves. I love making waves and won’t be quiet if my taxes ever go for something like that again.
I know this is supposed to be about my Aunt Adele and Jon Stewart. I can’t think of two people who would agree with me more. I love coming from a family where we were brought up to think. And we’ve come together in mutual homage to….
