White House Video: Hinna Zeejah Reads Letter to Obama on Gun Violence

After 8-year-old Hinna Zeejah of Oceanside, NY watched television coverage of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, she had one question, “Why do we have guns?”

8A-2013-01-23-120718539-Hinna-Zeejah-s-letter-to-Obama-on-gun-violenceHinna’s dad Farhan encouraged her to write a letter to President Barack Obama and drafted a letter that led to an invitation to the White House to meet and stand beside the President as he announced gun reform initiatives.

Hinna and 3 other elementary school children were invited to the White House and asked to read their letters on video.

From the YouTube description:

When President Obama announced the concrete plan he was putting forward to reduce gun violence, he shared the stage with four of the young people who wrote him letters on the issue. Watch Hinna read the letter she wrote to President Obama. Then, learn more about his plan to reduce gun violence and join the conversation at WhiteHouse.Gov/NowIsTheTime

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank. http://www.jozjozjoz.com
