that they learned about the history of Christmas.

"Since Christmas is a Christian holiday and we're Jewish," she
asks, "will God get mad at me for giving someone a Christmas

would get mad. Who do you want to give a Christmas card to?"

"Osama Bin Laden," she says.

"Why Osama Bin Laden," her father asks in shock.

could have enough love to give Osama a Christmas card, he might

loving people a little bit. And if other kids saw what I did and

he'd start going all over the place to tell everyone how much he
loved them and how he didn't hate anyone anymore."

Her father's heart swells as looks at his daughter with newfound

"Melissa, that's the most wonderful thing I've ever heard."
