Every day, tens of thousands of Americans write to our family. Some of their letters make us laugh. Some of their letters tear at our hearts. A lot of their letters remind Barack and me of our own lives. But all of their letters keep us connected to the stories of Americans across the country.
One of those letters came from Jason Gibson, a wounded warrior who wrote Barack last October. Jason sustained injuries serving our country in Afghanistan that led to the loss of both of his legs. Despite enduring 21 surgeries, he is unable to use prosthetics.
