Barack Obama deserves to be re-elected

IN THE midst of his fight to become re-elected, President Barack Obama took time off to respond positively to a touching letter he received last week from a 10-year-old girl, who wrote about her “two dads”.

Sophia Bailey Klugh told the President how happy she is that he agrees with her on the topic of marriage equality. She went on to ask the president an important question:

I am so glad that you agree two men can love each other because I have two dads and they love each other, but at school kids think that it's gross and weird, but it really hurts my heart and feelings … If you were me and you had two dads that loved each other and kids at school teased you about it, what would you do?

Obama replied:

Dear Sophia, Thank you for writing me such a thoughtful letter about your family. Reading it made me proud to be your president and even more hopeful about the future of our nation.

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. 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. 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.

Thanks again for taking the time to write me. I'm honored to have your support and inspired by your compassion. I'm sorry I couldn't make it to dinner, but I'll be sure to tell Sasha and Malia you say hello.
Sincerely,
Barack Obama

Now, if you haven’t already done so, go out and vote for the man and what he stands for: equality, humanity, tolerance and decency, qualities which are the very opposite of what Mitt Romney represents.
