Michael D's letter to the little girl on the Toy Show is a reminder that we have the best President

“You’re doing well as an arrow!”

LAST NIGHT, A little girl named Kathryn was presented with a very lovely letter from President Michael D. Higgins on The Late Late Toy Show.

Kathryn, an avid reader and budding political nerd, was presented with a framed copy of the letter from Ryan Tubridy on the show and her little face said it all.

This morning, the official President of Ireland account posted a copy of the letter that Kathryn received and it’s positively dotey.

He begins by congratulating Kathryn on her appearance on the Late Late Toy Show and mentioning her love of reading and presidential history.

As an avid reader you will know that books are windows to many worlds, both real and imaginary, and the benefits, and joys too, of reading will last a lifetime. People who read books will not just have the experiences of their own lives, but are also to take into themselves the feelings, actions and wisdom of many others.
It makes me particularly happy to hear of your interest in Presidents and politics. All of the Presidents you have read about will have tried, in their own way, to make this world a better place. I hope that you and all your friends will, too, keep faith in the power of each and every one of us to make a difference, working together to build a better, just and sustainable world.

And he closed with this:

After my election in 2011 what I told the ‘Being Young and Irish’ revents that I organised was “be the arrow, not the target.” You’re doing well as an arrow!

Another reminder that we truly have the best President.

Love you, Michael D.
