Mr. President, like my father, I want to work with you in these next four years to make our country stronger. Like you, I want to level the playing field. My father's biggest wish was that every Alabama child would have the same opportunity for a higher education - that each would embrace his or her individualism, would champion diversity, spread tolerance, enhance love for others and ultimately reap fairness. However, the system is protected by corporate elites who fear fairness, who dread sharing, and who ultimately have intolerance for those unlike themselves.

I believe the beginning of change starts with the self. That is why one of your greatest honors as President is pardoning those people you believe deserve it, without the vetting, processing, or politicking of others. It is precisely that deep-seated knowledge of individual justice that a President offers the country in order to level the playing field. After all, it is the earth's gravitational pull, which keeps the sun and moon from collapsing. I believe your unique understanding and powers as President are precisely what the Unites States needs over the next four years to remain a leader in this ever diversifying and globalizing world.

As a daughter who loves her dad, and wishes for him to be home for Christmas, to attend her graduation, to possibly walk her down the aisle, and to watch her grow up, I humbly ask you to pardon Don Siegelman this year.

Thank you sincerely,

Dana Siegelman
