I cannot even imagine how much your life has just changed. I am sure it is still sinking it for you. I just want you to know there is a nation full of mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and friends who are standing with you. Know that when you are in the public eye, you are not standing alone. We are all with you. You have a beautiful future in front of you. You have a beautiful family who loves you. And the truth is people will be jealous of you and be cruel to you for that. Others may use you. But life is full of good people too. Surround yourself with those, the ones who love you and encourage you, the ones who are kind to you and others. And be that person for others, too.
There will be people who are cruel to you and say cruel things to you and make you a target because of your family, because of your name. Some of these people will be adults, people who are supposed to protect children, which angers the rest of the nation for you. We are standing up with you, Barron.
As hurtful as this is, and honestly deplorable to do to any child, and completely unacceptable to do to the child of the President of the United States, and to be done by such high profile people who know better, I still encourage you to not let it touch you. What many of us have seen and known for years is just being revealed on a very public level for the world to see. The very ones preaching against hate, can sometimes be the very ones doing it the most.
I am beyond sorry that you are caught in the middle of this and taking the brunt that no child should ever take.
It is time to make our country better than that. We all need to do better and be kinder to one another.
But until we are there, know that we are standing with you, Barron. Grow up to be the amazing person you are destined to be. Grow up to be kind, generous, smart, and full of hope for a better day.
And I will add one more word for you, as hurtful as some of the things are that people will say and do to you, rise above it. Do not take one word they say to heart. They are a small little pocket of deplorable people who represent the worst of the human race. Sadly, some of them have large platforms. Trust me when I say it is all of them who are looking bad, not you. Don’t let it touch you. Put up an imaginary shield and let it bounce right back to them. Do not let them win. You are better than that. You have the opportunity, platform and ability in you to make a difference in our future one day. A real difference. Learn from the great leaders. Learn from the kind and generous souls. But do not let the haters touch you.
We are standing with you, sweet Barron.
To every single person, celebrity, whoever you are, who is being unkind to this child or any child: “Be careful. You are acting in the very hate in which you claim to stand against.” -Unknown
And just in case anyone has forgotten…CHILDREN ARE OFF LIMITS
No matter what political party we are part of, or maybe we are part of no political party at all, we must all agree that this is not acceptable.
And to all of the people out there with beautiful hearts and souls,
what would you want to say to Barron?
