Forgiveness note from Nancy Reagan to John Hinckley

Written by Subject: Humor
You might recall that John Hinckley was a seriously deranged young 
man who shot President Reagan in the early 1980's.

Hinckley  was absolutely obsessed with movie star Jodie Foster
extremely jealous, and in his twisted mind, loved Jodie Foster to 
the point that to make himself well known to her, he attempted to 
assassinate President Reagan.

There is speculation   Hinckley  may soon be released as having been 
rehabilitated. Consequently, you may appreciate the following letter 
from Nancy Reagan to John Hinckley:

To: John Hinckley
From: Mrs. Nancy Reagan

My family and I wanted to drop you a short note to tell you how 
pleased we are with the great strides you are making in your 
recovery. In our fine country's spirit of understanding and 
forgiveness, we want you to know there is a nonpartisan consensus of 
compassion and forgiveness throughout.

The Reagan family and I want you to know that no grudge is borne 
against you for shooting President Reagan. We, above all, are aware 
of how the mental stress and pain could have driven you to such an 
act of desperation. We are confident that you will soon make a 
complete recovery and return to your family to join the world again 
as a healthy and productive young man.

Best wishes,
Nancy Reagan & Family

P.S. While you have been incarcerated, Barack Obama has been banging 
Jodie Foster like a screen door in a tornado. You might want to look into

What I remember is that Hinkley came from an incredibly wealthy Texas oil family, that were great friends of Daddy Bush.   And that Reagan got  the message and ceased being Reagan in 1981.
