dear mr. obama
I am a seven year old boy and my name is Dwan and I am your big st fan mr. obama you now I like you because I see you at tv and in my dreme … thank you mr. obama … I wish you can be president.
Senator Obama wrote back to Dwan; the letter is shown in the picture of the Dwan (left).
Dwan's mom, Addoree wrote to me to say that last weekend, Dwan was out campaigning for his candidate. She said:
My son is 7 years old and he considers himself Obama's biggest fan! I really feel like this is amazing because even though I am an Obama supporter, I don't let the political scene consume me. Nevertheless, my son took his own money and purchased a magazine about Obama and he wants to visit him. He talks about him constantly.
When he is asked why he like Obama, he states that 'he is going to make the world better.' He also says that he is going to get more jobs and better education. Dwan tells everyone that he is going to be President of the United States when he grows up. He watches Obama's speeches on YouTube and pretends that he is practicing his speech. (lol)
I always try to encourage my child, but I just want Senator Obama to know that my child would probably have not had these type of aspirations if Obama would not have made this decision to make a difference. My heart has become so full of appreciation to Senator Obama (soon to be President Obama) for the positivity and hope that he has brought to my 7-year-old son's life.
Congrats, Dwan, on your volunteer campaign work and on your dreams and aspirations! And congrats, Addoree, on raising such a responsible, enthusiastic son!
