A girl with her head on straight

Little Melissa comes home from first grade and tells
her father that they learned about the history of
Valentine's Day.

"Since Valentine's Day is named after a Christian saint
and we're Jewish," she asks, "will G-d get mad at me for
giving someone a valentine?

Melissa's father thinks a bit, then says "No, I don't
think G-d would get mad. Who do you want to give a
valentine to?"

"Osama Bin Laden," she says.

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

"Well," she says, "I thought that if a little American
Jewish girl could have enough love to give Osama a
valentine, he might start to think that maybe we're
not all bad, and maybe start loving people a little bit.
And if other kids saw what I did and sent valentines to
Osama, he'd love everyone a lot. And then 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 and he looks at his daughter
with new found pride. "Melissa, that's the most
wonderful thing I've ever heard."

"I know," Melissa says, "and once that gets
him out in the open, the Marines could blow the
shit out of him
