The Letter...

The Bush daughters wrote this letter to the Obama daughters, Malia and Sasha; it is touching, it is poignant. It only takes three and a half minutes to watch and listen. Do it, you won't have wasted a bit of time, you will be moved. But, you may wish you'd grabbed a tissue first... don't say I didn't warn you.

Life is Good!

Thanks so much for sharing! You are right I did need tissues. Sometimes I think we forget that our leaders are just like us....human.

I heard it on the Today show and on Oprah. It brought tears to my eyes. How special that they would take the time to do that for the girls.

Thank you so much for posting this, it was an often heard chat at school today, and everyone was very touched by it. Now I can add that my tears are genuine, and my heart is touched by such a beautiful tribute from the daughters', not so much about being the daughters to a President but just about an awesome Dad that will always be Dad!

Also I picked up your *button* for my blog, AND tomorrow I will (hopefully) be enjoying your oatmeal for breakfast as posted earlier on your blog. I will let you know via my blog IF THE OATMEAL WORKED FOR ME ;>)!!

Yesterday AM, the Today show shared the letter with their viewers. Yes, tears came to my eyes! So many who name-call, make fun of and just say mean things about our Presidents (any on them) need to remember the loved ones whose feelings will be hurt by their words. No one, no one likes to hear bad things about their loved one, no matter how old we are! President Bush should be very proud of his daughters.
