Santa Claus

Dear Santa:

This letter is not a typical Christmas letter from a child telling you what they want for Christmas such as toys and clothes. Santa, what I want you cannot buy. First of all, I want the 2,800 men and women serving in Somalia to return safely to their families. Also I want the other troops from France, Italy, Belgium, Pakistan and Canada to return to their countries safely. Santa, we must not forget why these men and women are there. I wish the Somalians get the food and supplies they deserve. I feel guilty having so much food while others die of hunger.

Santa, please let my Christmas wish come true.
