Dear Mr. Kelsey

I have collected autographs for over 20 years. When I was in college I started writing to celebrities and asking them what they would tell a class of elementary school students. Over the years I have gotten over 200 letter and signed pictures to my students. I think that by these very busy people taking the time to share their thoughts with students, it shows the power of education. I hope you enjoy my collection

Charlie Daniels – Country Music Star

If you like country music then you have heard at least one song from Charlie Daniels. He is famous for his fiddle playing and for the song The Devil Went Down to Georgia. He sent a very nice signed picture as well as a great letter. Here is what he had to say.

Dear Class

It is an honor to talk to you.

I hope that all of you are planning to finish school. I know that you hear this a lot but it’s one of the most important things you will ever do.

We live in the greatest nation the world has known, with great freedom and opportunities. Don’t let anybody convince you differently.

Things can be difficult at times but if you just keep trying you can win.

As for me, I am a Christian and my faith in God and Jesus Christ are the most important things in my life.

I wish you all success and happiness.

God Bless
Charlie Daniels
