We Have Asked President Obama To Declare 9/11 As National “Do More Day” ! ! !

Hi, I just sent a letter to the world’s most powerful man, from the world’s smallest post office. Prins Christians Sund of Greenland has its own post office. It is out in the middle of nowhere on the south east corner of Greenland. It is a weather station and they have their very own post office.
We met them by 30 seconds to chance, unbelievable chance! We were leaving and just out of the corner of our eye we saw a person waving at us and we went back and talked to them. We climbed a huge pile of rock steps up to the top, went to the weather station, and checked emails. We sent the President of the United States an email and actually a post card from the world’s smallest post office.
We asked President Obama to declare 9/11 national “Do More Day”. Do more than just remember, actually do something! We want to do more, and that is what we are trying to do, to get everyone in the country to do, to do more than just say thanks to those that have paid such a price, to the firemen that gave their lives running into the burning buildings, to the police officers that gave their lives taking care of people getting out of the buildings, to the soldiers, the heroes, the warriors that have laid their lives down for us, and the families left behind and those who have been wounded in the process. We want to do more than just say thanks.
With that in mind we have left Prins Christians Sund and we will not touch land for 2 or 3 days on our way to Tasiilaq harbor also known as Ammassalik. It is just on the edge of the Arctic Circle and on the far east corner of Greenland.
We will talk to you later. You have a great day and God bless you.
