With great thanks from me to “Mark”: Dear President of America…
My wish today is that the *President of America* will take the time to answer this letter as he has those of other children!
Janne and her nice grandfather DESERVE some answers! So does the rest of Janne’s family.
Dear President of America,
My name is Janne. I am 9 years old.
I learn English in my school.
That is all of the English I know.
My teacher will translate the rest of my letter from my language.
I was born in America. My father says I am American. But I don’t live in America anymore.
My sister, my mother, and my father were not born in America. My sister, my mother, and my father are not American.
My grandfather is nice. My grandfather puts money in the bank for me and for my brother and for my sister. This is his present for my birthday and for my name day and for Christmas. Sometimes, he just gives me a present on any day. My grandfather is a nice person. My grandfather is not born in America. My grandfather is not American.
My grandfather says that my grandfather and I are in trouble. My brother and my sister and my parents are not in trouble. My grandfather says that we are in trouble because I am American and because my grandfather has been so nice.
My grandfather says that you believe that my grandfather and I are washing your money. My grandfather says that we must now explain to you that we are not bad people. He says that you don’t listen. My grandfather says that he does not like you or your friends anymore.
My grandfather says that my grandfather and I must send reports to you every year. What kind of report do you want? Is it like a school report?
Why do you believe that my grandfather and I are washing your money? Why don’t you believe that my grandfather and I are good people?
Please answer me very soon because my grandfather is very old and he is very worried. He says that this is the biggest problem he has had in a very long time. He says that you don’t listen and that you don’t care about my grandfather or about me.
