Dear Santa,
Wow, what a year 2017 has been. This year has brought even more sadness, violence and terror to the whole world.
I know I wrote to you last year and asked for peace over the Christmas period, but peace just for Christmas Day would be an improvement at the moment. See, Santa, I’m worried that it’s only getting worse. And I fear where it will end, if we carry on this way. It’s truly scary and it terrifies me to think that my little cousin and brother, as well as all of the children of that generation, will have to grow up in such a scary world.
So please bring joy to all of the children of the world this Christmas Santa. Some of these children have not felt joy for a long time, and they truly deserve to this Christmas. Keep them safe and warm and surround them with the people they love, as that’s what Christmas is truly about.
And surround me with my loved ones this Christmas. Let them all feel joy, and ease their wounds from the horrible year this has been.
Please keep zack safe. I don’t know what I would do without him, and I am already very scared about him being so far away. Please let him help people like he will be sent there to do, but please don’t let his kindness and optimism be ruined by the cruelty of this world.
I hope you’re doing ok Santa, and that you and all of your elves get a break this Christmas too. I’m sorry that I’ve asked for a lot, but i don’t know who else to ask santa.
