Letters to God

Letters to God

The following letters to God chronicle the quests of first and second graders around the country to get to the bottom of things.

Starting with Jane, whose concerns are purely pragmatic:

Dear God,

Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones, why don’t you just keep the ones you got now?

Jane

and Elliot, who knows a little flattery goes a long way:

Dear God,

I think the stapler is one of your greatest inventions.

Elliot

and Ruth, who goes above and beyond:

Dear God,

I think about you sometimes even when I’m not praying.

Ruth

or Joyce, who went ahead and said what every older sibling never had the guts to:

Dear God,

Thank you for the baby brother but what I prayed for was a puppy.

Then there’s Robert, who asks the hard questions:

Dear God,

I am American. What are you?

Robert

not to mention Nan, who just wants to spread the love:

Dear God,

I bet it is very hard for you to love all of everybody in the whole world. There are only 4 people in our family and I can never do it.

Nan

or Ginny, who’s just caught up in the holiday spirit.

Dear God,

Please put another holiday between Christmas and Easter. There is nothing good in there now.

And then there’s Peter, a firm believer in divine intervention:

Dear God,

Please send Dennis Clark to a different camp this year.

and Raphael, who knows how to drive a hard bargain:

Dear God,

If you give me a genie lamp like Aladdin, I will give you anything you want except my money or my chess set.

And finally Donna, who’s just looking out for the Big Guy’s intellectual property:

Dear God,

We read Thomas Edison made light. But in Sunday School they said you did it. So I bet he stoled your idea.
