President Sends Personal Letter To Kid

July 20, 2010

Some kids turn to parents, friends or teachers if they’re dealing with bullies. But one local girl went right to the top for a little help.

Student Ziainey Stokes from West Philadelphia wrote a letter to President Obama about bullying in January. The 11-year-old was fed up with being a victim after several years of abuse at two schools.

“I wrote that some people don’t care if you get bullied or not, but I do care,” Ziainey said.

Not expecting a response, Ziainey was ecstatic to find what arrived in her mailbox in March – a genuine letter from the Commander-in-Chief.

“Your letter demonstrates a desire to change the culture of your classroom as well as your community,” he wrote.

Thanks for the kind words  Mr President..
