Sophia Bailey Klugh’s fathers, Jonathan Bailey and Triton Klugh, posted their daughter’s letter on Facebook with the following comment:
“Totally umprompted, our amazing 10 year-old decided to write this letter to Barack Obama, and it made Triton Klugh and I so unbelievably proud. And maybe we teared up a little.
I’ve refrained from all the political posts, but this is just too close to home to ignore. This is not about President Obama - it’s about what’s right. So frankly, if you don’t agree with the innocent, heartfelt and surprisingly straightforward position of my 10 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER, then please unfriend me because we don’t actually belong connected here in the first place.”
