President Obama responds to 10-year-old’s letter about her two gay dads. 

“I am so glad that you agree two men can love each other because I have two dads and they love each other, but at school kids think that it’s gross and weird, but it really hurts my heart and feelings…,” Sophia wrote last week.

His response, which was no form letter: 

“They are lucky to have such an exceptional daughter in you.”

“…We recognize that whether you have two dads or one mom what matters above all is the love we show one another. You are very fortunate to have two parents who care very deeply for you.”

Since our founding the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. Already many Libyans have joined us in doing so and this attack will not break the bonds between the United Sates and Libya. Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. The Libyan’s helped some of our diplomats find safety and they carried Ambassador Stevens’ body to the hospital where we tragically learned he had died.
