WILLIAM JEFFERSON "BILL" CLINTON President Bill Clinton signed this letter, typed on White House stationery, to a group of students to tell them how they could improve the U. S. Typed letter signed "Bill Clinton" under facsimile signature. 1 page, 8½x10¾, on White House stationery. In full: "Dear Students: Thank you for writing. You letters mean so much to me. I believe that young people are the future of our country. That is why so many of my proposals are designed to build a better nation for your generation. We must improve education for all students. We must also protect our environment and ensure that our communities are safe. Without your help, I cannot make all of the changes that America needs. You can preserve the environment in many ways - by participating in recycling program and by picking up litter. You can volunteer to serve food in shelters for the homeless, you can tutor kids who are having trouble in school, or you can become a friend to a child who is less fortunate than you are. The most important thing you can do for your country is to work hard in the classroom and prepare yourself for the time when your generation will be leading America. Become involved in your community, and together we can make a difference. I'm sorry I cannot answer all of your questions, but I will try to address them as I talk to people and give speeches all around the country. I hope that you will be listening. I challenge each of you to take responsibility for your future and for the future of America. Sincerely,". Clinton, born William Jefferson Blythe III in Hope, Arkansas in 1946, was Governor of Arkansas (1979-1981, 1983-1992) and the first Democrat re-elected President since Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The only elected U.S. President to be impeached (Andrew Johnson was impeached, but he had not been elected to the office), on Feb. 12, 1999, President Clinton was acquitted on both articles of impeachment brought against him: charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. Clinton's popularity stood at 67% at the end of his trial, however. Obviously, many Americans were willing to overlook his personal failings in an era of peace and prosperity. His accomplishments in office included a waiting period for gun purchases (the Brady Law), the Family and Medical Leave Act, the North American Free Trade Agreement, welfare reform and balancing of the federal budget. Clinton had previously co-written (with Al Gore) Putting People First (1992), and he would publish his successful autobiography My Life in 2004. Clinton's wife, former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, was a Democratic U. S. Senator from New York (2001-2009), and is currently Secretary of State under President Barack Obama.
