Get well letter to John Kerry

Whether you like him or not, I wrote John Kerry a get well letter.  Told him about the woman bicyclist who t-boned into me, almost breaking my femur.  She got up and left me for dead.  Got a nice - not quite a form letter - "Teresa and I great appreciate your uplifting words more than you know.  Soon enough I will be back on the road - and yes, tempted to get back on a bike!  In the meantime, thank you - God bless - and onwards!"Nancy L.
