President Obama’s Letter to 10 Year old Girl with 2 Dads

March 3rd, 2013 by Admin

Check this out:  10-year-old Girl Writes to President Obama About Gay Marriage — and He Writes Back

Imagine her surprise when she looked in her mailbox last week and saw that the President of the United States had written back to her. 
“In America, no two families look the same. We celebrate this diversity. And we recognize that whether you have two dads or one mom what matters above all is the love we show one another,”
 Obama wrote, “You are very fortunate to have two parents who care deeply for you. They are lucky to have such an exceptional daughter in you.”

“Our differences unite us. You and I are blessed to live in a country where we are born equal no matter what we look like on the outside, where we grow up, or who our parents are,” the President continued. “A good rule is to treat others the way you hope they will treat you. Remind your friends at school about this rule if they say something that hurts your feelings.”

Then he apologized for having missed dinner, and promised “to tell Sasha and Malia you say hello.”

“This is not about President Obama, it’s about what’s right,” Jonathan Bailey wrote on Facebook. “Thank you, Barack Obama — you have made one 10-year-old feel might special (and her two dads, too). “
