WYSO

Dear Mr. President

Help us tell the story of the Miami Valley by writing a letter to the President and sending it to WYSO.

Your letter can be written, or recorded for audio or video. WYSO will collect the letters for a special storytelling series this spring.

Your letter may be featured on the air! 

Here's how to participate:

Write a letter: No more than 300 words - THEN - follow these steps:

  • Record yourself in audio or video reading your letter out loud
  • Send us the recording. Length: no longer than 90-seconds
  • Send us a selfie/portrait of yourself holding your letter
  • Please let us know if you need help recording your letter

We want to hear from you, your family, your friends and your neighbors. Email your letter to wyso@wyso.org. A producer may contact you for more information.

Ways to Connect

Since December, WYSO has been collecting your audio letters for a project we’re calling Dear Mr. President, which asks what you want to say about your community – and what you want President Donald Trump to know about the Miami Valley.

Dear Mr. President: Kindness And Love

Mar 29, 2017

Dear Mr. President,

You are about to embark on the most important job in the world and will have the capacity to change our world.

The question is, how would you like to change it? I hope your intention is to change it for the good.

I have learned that one can only give what they have, so if you want to give kindness and love, then you have to have plenty of it in your heart to give.

My suggestion to you is to surround yourself with loving people who will give you advice backed up with love, care and generosity, then you can give them to the world.
