Here is a letter a kid wrote to his parents. For some the letter is reality for others ,maybe it will help us to get things into perspective February 18th, 2006 by Sue Blaney A father passing by his sons bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, Dad. With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter, with trembling hands. Dear Dad, It is with great regret and sorrow that Im writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you. Ive been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her, because of all her piercings, tattoos, her tight Motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am. But its not only the passion, Dad! Shes pregnant! Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children. Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesnt really hurt anyone. Well be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people in the commune, for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, well pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it!! Dont worry Dad, Im 15, and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, Im sure well be back to visit, so you can get to know your grandchildren. Love, your son, David P.S. Dad, None of the above is true. Im over at Tommys house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the report card thats in my center desk drawer. I love you!Call when it is safe for me to come home. Perhaps this story came your way as it has been circulating on the web. Its a classic. If I knew to whom I should attribute it, I would. After you stop laughing, consider the message. Its a good one.
