Monsieur le Président
de la République Palais de l'Elysée 55,

Saint-Honoré 75008 Paris
Monsieur le Président,
On behalf of my country, the United States of America, I would like to apologize to you and to France for the absence of our own President. There is no excuse to be given when the leader of a great nation refuses to show solidarity with one of our oldest allies.
I remember after September 11, 2001 when your Président Chirac was the first world leader to visit America and show us your support. As an American, that meant a lot to me. And now when it was our turn, we were not there for you.
While I certainly cannot speak for Mr. Obama, I can tell you that I, as well as millions of other Americans like myself, were with you and with France. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your Country. We pray that Islamic extremism is stamped out. It serves no other purpose but violence and death. We commend you and all the world leaders who marched for taking a stand and showing the terrorists that we stand solidly together against them and that they will not win. Every time someone gives in to a bully, the bully becomes bolder and stronger. The world sent a message that we will be bullied no more by these extremists.
Please know that not all Americans are like our current leader and his administration. We believe there are more important issues in the world than football and golf. I hope you accept my apology and my prayers. Our politics may not be the same, but the feelings of despair and mourning are. God be with you in your future endeavor against radical Islam.
The Conservative Wife
