President-elect Donald Trump will be sworn into office today, Friday, January 20th, 2017. In 2008, we were shouting ‘Yes we can!,’ with hope for the future bright and burning. Now, on the heels of a messy election, we are bringing into office a new kind of President, with ideals and priorities different from the historical moment in which we are exiting. Speaking with my family, friends, and colleagues, their is concern and doubt, yet, still hope. The children are our future and their voices echo what’s to come.
Here are the letters of young, black girls, wishing President Trump well in his new position in office, and voicing their concerns for an ever-changing America. Their honesty and purity will move you.
