Never underestimate the power of blogs and the breadth of readership and exposure. Now with that statement, what would YOU choose to write in a letter to King Abdullah? What message would you wish to convey to him and why? Would it be a political message or perhaps a more personal message? I encourage American Bedu followers to write their own letters to King Abdullah.
Given the events of my life, my message at this time would be very personal. It would go something like this…
Salam Alaikum Ramatullah wa Barakat,
Your Majesty, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques,
I want to sincerely thank you for granting the marriage approval of me and my late husband, Abdullah Othman Al-Ajroush. I will always treasure the years which we had together as a couple in Saudi Arabia. Our time together was way too short but Allah had other plans for Abdullah. However, the time we spent in Saudi Arabia allowed me to discover and experience so many of the hidden treasures and beauty of the Kingdom. I am now back in the United States but will always have a deep affinity in me for Saudi Arabia and its people. Insha’allah, one day I will be able to return to the Kingdom for a visit and recapture some of the most beautiful memories of places I had been with my late husband.
With your visit to the United States, my wish is that more Americans will want to learn about Saudi Arabia. Too few are aware that Saudi Arabia is the Kingdom of Humanity and has reached out far and wide to provide humanitarian support and assistance throughout the globe.
With Highest Respect,
Carol Fleming (Al-Ajroush)
