10 year old Mion Charity in Kansas City

Dear President Obama,
I am writing on behalf of my 10 year old Granddaughter, Mion Marie Amen Charity. She attends St. Peter's Catholic School and has written you on several occasions. Your response to her has thrilled her so much... she wants to be the first (or second) African-American female president of the United States. You will be in Kansas City tonight and tomorrow... a mere mile from her house. Please, please stop by to see her at 2401 Brooklyn - on your way to Gates Bar-B-Que or allow her to have dinner with you while you are here.

My family has campaigned for you each time you run because we believe in you!

God Bless You! and Best Wishes,
Diane Charity - Grandma Diane
1331 East 43rd St. Apt D209
