Woman Sent Invites To The Obamas For Her Wedding And Gets Sweetest Reply

The political climate these days is incredibly polarised

The left and right didn’t see eye to eye on issues before, butย now… Well, now they’re up at each other’s throats over every single thing. So it’s a nice break whenever something related to politics happens that doesn’t cause a stir. Such as how one woman sent a wedding invite to the Obama family, but got a surprise reply anyway.

The woman, Liz Whitlow, sent the invite back in March, and the Obama’s actually replied.

They wrote:

“Congratulations on your wedding. We hope that your marriage is blessed with love, laughter, and happiness and that your bond grows stronger with each passing year. This occasion marks the beginning of a lifelong partnership, and as you embark on this journey, know you have our very best for the many joys and adventures that lie ahead.”

And given how much her mother loved the Obama family, no doubt she’d throw some shade at President Trump too.

But that’s not all

See, Whitlow isn’t the first person to mail something to the Obama family and get a reply. Turns out, this has been something of consistency with them. In the past, they’ve received letters about births, graduations, all of which they replied to

“Welcome to the world! We know the great joy your proud family must feeel, and we are pleased to join in celebrating your arrival

As you grow and learn, we hope you are blessed with rich experiences, unwavering love, and tremendous opportunity. May you always dream big dreams.”

This woman sent them her high school graduation announcement and they replied just about a month later

“Dear Aubree:

Michelle and I are delighted to send our heartfelt congratulations on your graduation.

In your achievement, I see not only the culmination of years of hard work, but also a unique piece of the mosiac you form with students from the class of 2016 across our Nation. Together, you embody an America that finds unity in its diversity, draws strength from a spirit of common purpose, and aspires to reach the breakthroughs of tomorrow. Unencumbered by what has been and unafraid of new frontiers, you remind us that what has kept our country moving forward through everything we have experienced— what defines us above all— has always been our unwavering belief in the possibilities of the future.

Congratulations,again, on this accomplishment. As you reflect on the efforts that brought to you this moment and look toward all the lies ahead, know that your President is proud of you and inspired by your generation.”

Dear Catherine,

Thanks for your kind message. Michelle and I have been touched by the words of support we received from Americans across our country, and I appreciate the time you’ve taken to write.

I’m proud of the progress we made together. Thanks to the participation and resolve of everyday Americans like you, our country is a better and stronger place today than it was before I took office. None of our accomplishments were inevitable— they were the result of people from every background and station in life stepping forward and embracing the important responsibilities of citizenship. As long as we continue working in common effort and presuming the inherent goodness in one another, I’m confident our brightest days will always lie ahead.

Again, thank you for writing. It was the honour of my life to serve as your President, and while there were many milestone moments we will always remember, it was my conversation with people like you that kept me going every single day. They’ve stayed with me, and they always will. Thanks for everything— I wish you the very best.”

Stacey also got a reply for her grad announcement!

Again, congratulations on this well-earned achievement. I hope your next chapters are filled with boundless opportunity and memorable experiences, and I wish you all the best.”
