A letter to My Daughters-Barrack Obama


Dear Malia and Sashar

\

I know the you both had a lot fun in the last two years on the campaign trail, going to picnics and parades and stay fairs,eating all sorts of the junk food your mother and I probably shouldn't let you have. but I also know that it hasn't always been easy for you and mom. And that as excited as you both are about that new puppy, it doesn't make up for all the time we had been apart. I know how much I missed you these past two years and today I want to tell you a little more about why I decided to take our family on this journey.

When i was a young man, i thought life was all about me about how I'd make my way in the world, become successful and get the thing I want. But then the two of you came into my world with all you curiosity and mischief and those smiles never fail to filled my heart and light up my day. And suddenly, all my big plan for myself didn't seem so important anymore. I soon find that the greatest joy in my life was the joy I saw in yours. and i realized that my own life wouldn't counts for much unless I was able to ensure that you had every opportunity for happiness and fulfillment in yours. in the end, girls that why I run for president because what Iwant for you and for every child in this nation.I want all of the children to go to school worthy of their potential, school that challenge them, inspired them,and instilled in them a sense of wonder about the world around them, I want them to have a chance to go to college even their parents aren't rich, then i want them to get good jobs, job pay them well and give then benefit like health care, jobs that can spend time with their own kid and retired with dignity.

I want us to push the boundary of discovery so that you will live to see new techonology and invention that improved our life and make our planet cleaner and safer,and i want us to push our own human boundary reach beyond the devides of race and region,gender and religion that keep us from seeing best in each other. Sometime we have to sent our young man and woman into war and other danger situation to protect our country.but when we do, i want to make sure that it's only for very good reason that we try our best to settled our difference with others peacefully and the we do everything possible to keep our servicemen and women safe.

.And I want every child to understand that the blessings these brave Americans fight for are not free—that with the great privilege of being a citizen of this nation comes great responsibility. That was the lesson your grandmother tried to teach me when I was your age, reading me the opening lines of the Declaration of Independence

of this nation and telling me about the men and women who marched forequality because they believed those words put to paper two centuries ago should mean something. She helped me understand that America is great not because it is perfect but because it can always be made better—and that the unfinished work of perfecting our union falls to each of us.

It's a charge we pass on to our children, coming closer with each new generation to what we know America should be. I hope both of you will take up that work, righting the wrongs that you see and working to give others the chances you've had.

 Not just because you have an obligation to give something back to this country that has given our family so much—although you do have that obligation. But because you have an obligation to yourself.

Because it is only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you will realize your true potential.

These are the things I want for you—to grow up in a world with no limits on your dreams and no achievements beyond your reach,and to grow to compassionate, committed women who will help build that world.

And I want every child to have the same chances to learn and dream and grow and thrive that you girls have. That's why I've taken our family on this great adventure.

I am so proud of both of you. I love you more than you can ever know. And I am grateful every day for your patience, poise, grace,and humor as we prepare to start our new life together in the WhiteHouse.

Love Dad.
