Dear Barack Obama

Dear Barack Obama,

I am writing you a letter to express my admiration for many of the changes and improvements you have made. You have brought peace, health, and happiness to hundreds of minorities and you have made America proud of you. However, I feel you have only touched the tip of the iceberg. There are still so many issues around the world that need to be addressed. Unimaginable horrors are taking place every day before our eyes. It is up to you to do everything in your power to make immediate changes and help end the suffering taking place around the world.

I would like to address the war in Syria. As the world knows, thousands of innocent men, women and children have lost their lives since President Assad came to power in 1971. Today Assad still rules and people have been living in civil war conditions, which is unforgivable. Their lives have been shattered, family members killed, and they live surrounded by bloodshed and fear. There is not enough food to go around and many children are living without an education and many men and women are unable to work. Assad is a terrifying ruler who would go to any length to stay in power, use any means of violence, terror and abuse towards his own people. Is there nothing more you can do to help these poor innocent people who, I am sure, feel like the world has forgotten about them? The Syrians need the help of all the world powers to save them from this terrifying dictator.

It is also my belief that when a war occurs in any country you should do absolutely everything in your power to help innocent people stuck in the middle. Many of these people are innocent and don’t deserve to suffer the way they do. Often it is the fault of the people who are in power because they are power hungry dictators. It is your responsibility, as the President of the United States of America, to help these people live normal and decent lives. America has declared war against some helpless countries. It is in your hands to bring peace to these countries and end these dreadful wars without them continuing, with the death toll growing every day. Families are destroyed worldwide and America becomes a country that is hated rather than respected.

I believe and hope that after you have read my letter I may have convinced you to listen to what many people of my generation have to say, but can’t, and to what I believe. We are deeply saddened by the tragedies of war, horrified by the suffering of some societies today and want to end bloodshed that is occurring in too many countries currently around the world. Just as you have fought for the rights of many of the minorities in America, theses people need you to fight for them and, using you power and influence, end their suffering. In return they will thank you and remember you for restoring peace and giving them back their lives, or for helping them to find their own freedom. Even the people who disliked you may start believing in you and give America and you a second chance. You must fight for world peace, fight to end the wars and human suffering. Every child should be given a chance, every human a life without war.
