A little boy asks Santa to find out if God loves him
It’s a time-honored tradition to write to Santa Claus.
But some kids don’t want the latest toy or a new iPhone — they just want to help their family pay the bills or to be loved.
A recent photo posted on Twitter of a letter to Santa from a little boy named Will is striking a chord around the world.
“Do you support the LGBTQ community and if you speak to god can you tell Him that I love him,” Will wrote. “…and if he loves me for being gay?”
This letter to Santa broke my heart.
The United States Postal Service had shared the letter, among others, ahead of their annual program, USPS Operation Santa. The other letters highlighted — all from years prior — show children asking for things like mattresses and money to help their parents.
An 11-year-old named Kayla asked for a pull-out couch.
“I have an apartment that only has 1 room and my parents sleep in the living room on the couch and they always wake up with back pain,” she explained. “My dad works a lot so his back pain stresses him out.”
