Bush Sisters Wrote a Super Sweet Letter to the Obama Daughters
Classy move, ladies.
Think about it - the children of our Presidents are an enigma. They literally had no choice but to be thrown into the spotlight of our country, and the world, during some of the most confusing years of their lives. Who knows - some of them may not even share the same political beliefs as their parents. But, either way, it's a unique and small "club" that only those who have been there could understand.
So, in light of this, Jenna and Barbara Bush penned a very sweet letter to Sasha and Malia Obama, and we couldn't help but smile.
Malia and Sasha, eight years ago on a cold November day, we greeted you on the steps of the White House. We saw both the light and wariness in your eyes as you gazed at your new home. We left our jobs in Baltimore and New York early and traveled to Washington to show you around. To show you the Lincoln Bedroom, and the bedrooms that were once ours, to introduce you to all the people—the florists, the grounds-keepers and the butlers—who dedicate themselves to making this historic house a home. The four of us wandered the majestic halls of the house you had no choice but to move in to. When you slid down the banister of the solarium, just as we had done as 8-year-olds and again as 20-year-olds chasing our youth, your joy and laughter were contagious.
We have watched you grow from girls to impressive young women with grace and ease. And through it all you had each other. Just like we did.
They then go on to tell the girls to never forget the people who worked at the White House during their time there.
We know it wasn’t always easy—the two of you and the two of us were teenagers trailed by men in backpacks—but they put their lives on hold for us.
