Dear Santa

On Monday night, the Dream Keepers met for their annual holiday party. We ate cookies, drank lemonade, and wrote letters to Santa. Afterwards, each of the children chose a book to take home. One of the younger Dream Keepers asked me, "You mean I can keep it forever?"
"Forever."
"Yes!" she cheered.
All of the young people—eight boys and two girls—were equally thrilled to take home a book.
This year's collection of books for the young people came from generous donations by the Zonta Club of Milwaukee, people who purchased books through our Amazon Associateprogram, and two individuals who donated their own gently used books. Many, many thanks!
I was thrilled to read their letters to Santa. I hope you are, too. Enjoy.
Dear Santa, I want things to change. Let there be peace instead of violence. I want everybody to have a house and a car. I don't want anybody on the street. Sincerely, Damarious
