    little becky xmas wish

    Dear Santa Clause,

    This is the very first time I’ve ever written to you.

    All my Christmases have been wonderful.

    And you gave me lots of nice toys.

    This year mommy says Christmas won’t be the same because …

    well, Because my big bother Tommy won’t be here

    Not too long ago Tommy was home in a green suit with great big gold buttons.

    He looked like our mail man Mr. Dewey.

    When Tommy was home I tried his shinny shoes on, they were so big Tommy laughed and he said “It takes a big man to fill those shoes”

    Santa, I wonder what he meant by that.

    I asked Tommy if he loved mommy, daddy and me, and you know what he said? He said he loved us very much.

    And he loved his country too.

    And that’s why he was going away.

    Last week Mr. Dewey brought mommy a letter and made mommy cry.

    I don’t like Mr. Dewey anymore.

    When daddy came home, he cried too, and I never never saw my dad cry before.

    Santa why were mommy and daddy crying ?

    That took Tommy’s record player and things and put them in the attic.

    Santa please don’t you be mad at me.

    Mommy was when I played Tommy’s favorite record yesterday.

    Tommy used to play one special record over and over and over.

    A man was talking and said not what my country can do , what I can do..

    Or – or something like that.

    I asked what that meant

    but he said It means a lot

    But I’m too young to know.

    Tommy has a girlfriend, her name is Kathy.

    But she doesn’t come over anymore.

    I wonder why ?

    Santa, I like nice toys and things

    And you can bring me some if you want to.

    But please, please bring Tommy home for Christmas.

    So mommy and daddy won’t cry anymore.

    Ok? Santa ?

    See ya and Tommy on Christmas.

    Love,

    Becky.
