Hi, Princess!

My darling granddaughter, I love you more than life itself. There’s been a lot of hateful talk in the world lately, and I just wanted to share a bit of what I tried to teach your mommy.

We should all celebrate our differences, and we should embrace all that makes us the same.

There has never been, and there will never be, another you. By gender, heritage, experiences, and any one of a hundred different things, everybody is different from everybody else, if you combine everything that makes a person a person. At the same time, we are all human. We are all people. We have a million more things that make us the same, than things that make us different.

No two snowflakes are identical, but they are all snowflakes!

Anyway, I’m not trying to tell you what to believe, that’s not my job. All I can do is tell you what I believe.

And always remember, I love you very very very very very much!

Love,

Hi, Princess!

Okay, so a lot is going on in the world right now, especially with our new president. I’m sorry I haven’t written to you about all this stuff, but I didn’t know how to talk about it.

I guess that it’s easy to answer the questions that start Who, What, Where, When. The answers to those kinds of questions can be found in libraries, dictionaries, encyclopedias and even online.

I think the more important questions start with Why or How. Because you can’t just memorize facts, you have to think, and figure things out for yourself. I hope that makes sense.

Love you sooooooooooooooooooo much!
