Letters to President Obama: Making a Difference

Dear Soon-to-be President Obama,

I am very, very, very, very, very, VERY happy that you have been elected our next President. Congratulations! I knew that you were very interested in the global climate issues in our world and we, as the Roots and Shoots group, The Sprouts of Hope, really agree with the speech you made on climate change.

As a Roots and Shoots group, one of our main priorities is the climate and the world we live in. We have many influences like Jane Goodall and Martin Luther King, Jr, but you are also a great influence to us because the way you persisted and kept giving speech after speech in many different states really proved that eventually we will make a difference and that we can make a change, especially a good one. Already, we are going to use a video made and dedicated to you (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yq0tMYPDJQ) for a school assembly we will have about composting. We have many different projects and to know that a person of any race, gender, country, etc. can make a difference really inspires us so much. So thank you very much, Mr. Obama, for your persistence that proved to us that anyone can make a difference. Or as you would say, "Yes We can."

Sincerely, Jane, Sprouts of Hope, Cambridge, MA

P.S. Thank you for your time to read this message. Congratulations again!
