Alex, age 6, and his letter to President Obama About A Syrian Boy

Dear Alex, age 6, in New York:

I smiled and cried when I saw you read your letter about helping the little boy in Syria who was sitting in an ambulance after a bombing, having him live with you and your family, sharing everything you have with him.

Alex, we all need friends like you. We should all have hearts like you.

I was with some people at a church for about eight years and most of them, sadly, didn’t really like other people, didn’t love them, didn’t want to do nice things for them, especially if they were from some far away country.

Thank you Alex for reminding me that I need more friends like you who want to help.
