  2. This is an amazing letter… It is time for a change and if it is seen thru a 11 year old child, then we as adults need to change for the better, cause like he said, this is his future too… Congrads young man of the next generation on a well written letter

  3. I had the good fortune to be listening to the radio on the evening the young man got to speak to the next president. It was indeed a moving experience. What everyone needs to know is that this was not rehearsed or staged. This was real. The young man’s parents should be very very proud of him. Not only did the young man write this letter and campaign for Barrack Obama but he was also at the Jenna 6 rally with his Stepfather was has character that has been passed on to his son. This got very little mainstream media attention, but if I worked on Obama’s campaign staff I would make sure to use this in the final stage of the election. An 11 year old put his money where his mouth was. No matter who you voted for or will vote for in the general election the fact that Obama has reached all ages and has had a great effect on the young who is the future of this country can not be denied.
