He's Listening...

...or at least trying to:

Every day President Barack Obama is handed a special purple folder. The folder contains ten letters, and every day President Obama takes time to read them.

Are they from world leaders? From members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff? Members of the intelligence community?

No, these letters have been culled from the thousands the White House Correspondence Office receives each day from Americans who have taken the time to sit down and write to their president.

That means, even taking into account a day off or two along the way, by the end of his term he'll have read over 14,000 letters from the citizenry.
