If you are like me, you've probably wondered just exactly what happened on Red Envelope Day. Well, thanks to Melinda at Traveling the Road Home and WorldNetDaily I was able to find out. Here is an excerpt from WorldNetDaily:
The White House mail office has confirmed it received a "deluge" of as many as 2.25 million red envelopes symbolizing the empty promise of lives snuffed out in abortion in a massive campaign that was larger than most White House mailing movements in the last 35 years.(To read the rest of the article, click here.)
White House mail worker "Steve" has handled letters for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for more than three decades. Every single package and letter destined for the White House goes through his office.
Asked if he has seen a flood of red envelopes bound for the White House, Steve chuckled.
"Uh, yes," he said emphatically. "Believe me, they made it here."
Steve said while Obama has been occupied in Europe, his administration has noticed millions of red envelopes on behalf of aborted children.
"Quite frankly, there was definitely a deluge of mail coming through," he laughed. "I had to handle them all."
"I've been here 35 years, so I've seen presidents come and go," Steve told WND. "This campaign ranks up there with the big ones."
I haven't heard if President Obama himself has seen or even heard about the massive mailing, but if anyone's heart in Washington has been changed, then it was well worth the effort.
Change his heart Lord,
