I am so proud . . .

Emily wrote her first letter to the president today. Well, as of tomorrow he'll be president. She drew a picture and dictated her letter to me then signed her name. She wrote:

Dear President Obama:

I like you. I like your color and I love you. I hope you will be a good president.


I put her name and age next to the picture she drew, then she asked to put a picture of herself in with it, so we did.

I was not an Obama supporter, but I am so proud of her. She made a decision on her own to do what she did. She decided herself who to support - a freedom that she, a child, would not have in other countries.

America is such a wonderful place.
