@POTUS responds to a girl’s request for world peace


President Obama is putting his new Twitter account to good use.

Last week, President Obama wrote his sixth tweet when he responded to an adorable heartfelt letter from Yasmeen Faruqui, a self described “5 almost 6 year-old”, who wants to make the world a better place.

“Please stop war for our world, instead have a meeting. Please give a speech to tell everyone they can marry who they want. Thank you,” the handwritten letter said.

Yasmeen’s aunt posted the letter on Twitter and tagged @potus, which generated a response from the commander-in-chief.

The original Tweet has been retweeted over 4,000 times and continues to generate a response among the social media world. Yasmeen’s aunt thanked everyone for their feedback this past weekend.
