On the day President Donald Trump was elected, Laura Jones ― a fourth-grade teacher at a predominantly Hispanic public school in Houston ― found herself facing questions she did not know how to answer.

“Ms. Jones, am I going to become an orphan?” “Is my family going to be separated?” “Why doesn’t Donald Trump like us?” her students asked.

This 9-year-old student signed his letter, “I’m proud to say I’m black.”

Jones told them to put their thoughts into writing in letters addressed to the newly elected president. Their responses were stunning, heart-wrenching and cautiously hopeful.

“I would like to know, how do you know all this about Mexicans?” asked 9-year-old Leans Dican. “These people are coming for a better life, for food and for a better future for their family. They come here to work in the best country in the world.”

 

Some students were too afraid to even sign their names, for fear of putting their families at risk.

LABELS..... No amount of soap can wash away the stench. It's sad to see kids carry so much burden on their shoulders. They did nothing wrong to suffer this fate.

Mr President, the world is watching !
