Letter to Trump From the Children



Print page

A lot of lives have been lost in Aleppo, Syria due to the bombings and the ongoing tragedy of war. Families have been broken up, but some have made it out just in time. We Americans have welcomed our new president who some of us aren’t proud of. We have to work together to make our country better, and to help other who need help the most no matter our own political divisions.

Donald Trump received a letter that was published by the BBC from a Syrian child explaining her situation and her concern of the Syrian people. She was one of the many kids that had to go through the bombings, but luckily she and her family made it out alive and are now in Turkey. Bana Alabed had friends who died from the bombings. She is asking for Trumps assistance to help the kids of Syria.

“Dear Donald Trump,

My name is Bana Alabed and I am a seven years old Syrian girl from Aleppo.

I lived in Syria my whole life before I left from besieged East Aleppo on December last year. I am part of the Syrian children who suffered from the Syrian war.

But right now, I am having a peace in my new home of Turkey. In Aleppo, I was in school but soon it was destroyed because of the bombing.

Some of my friends died.

I am very sad about them and wish they were with me because we would play together by right now. I couldn’t play in Aleppo, it was the city of death.

Right now in Turkey, I can go out and enjoy. I can go to school although I didn’t yet. That is why peace is important for everyone including you.

However, millions of Syrian children are not like me right now and suffering in different parts of Syria. They are suffering because of adult people.

I know you will be the president of America, so can you please save the children and people of Syria? You must do something for the children of Syria because they are like your children and deserve peace like you.

If you promise me you will do something for the children of Syria, I am already your new friend.

I am looking forward to what you will do for the children of Syria.”

Now is the perfect time for Trump and our government leaders to look into this more than he before; not only for the kids but to show the world we stand for what we mean business. Its not about how you start but its how you progress and finish. It is better to have hope.  I choose to have faith in Trump that he can help the needless families that are struggling in parts all over Syria.
