All You Wanted To Know But Didn’t Know How and Where

Sina uhakika kama ulipata nafasi ya kuisoma barua ya wazi kutoka kwa Rais wa Marekani Barack Obama kwenda kwa wanae Malian a Sasha aliyowaandikia siku chache kabla ya kuapishwa kuliongoza taifa hilo lenye kila aina ya mikimikiki ikiwemo ya kivita na sasa ya kiuchumi.Kama hukuisoma basi pata nafasi ya kufanya hivyo sasa.Ina maneno ya busara ambayo kama wewe ni mzazi au unatarajia kuwa mzazi basi unaweza kuwamegea wanao.

Dear Malia and Sasha,

I know that you’ve both had a lot of fun these last two years on the campaign trail, going to picnics and parades and state fairs, eating all sorts of junk food your mother and I probably shouldn’t have let you have. But I also know that it hasn’t always been easy for you and Mom, and that as excited as you both are about that new puppy, it doesn’t make up for all the time we’ve been apart. I know how much I’ve missed these past two years, and today I want to tell you a little more about why I decided to take our family on this journey.

When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me-about how I’d make my way in the world, become successful, and get the things I want. But then the two of you came into my world with all your curiosity and mischief and those smiles that never fail to fill my heart and light up my day. And suddenly, all my big plans for myself didn’t seem so important anymore. I soon found that the greatest joy in my life was the joy I saw in yours. And I realized that my own life wouldn’t count for much unless I was able to ensure that you had every opportunity for happiness and fulfillment in yours. In the end, girls, that’s why I ran for President: because of what I want for you and for every child in this nation.

I want all our children to go to schools worthy of their potential-schools that challenge them, inspire them, and instill in them a sense of wonder about the world around them. I want them to have the chance to go to college-even if their parents aren’t rich. And I want them to get good jobs: jobs that pay well and give them benefits like health care, jobs that let them spend time with their own kids and retire with dignity.

I want us to push the boundaries of discovery so that you’ll live to see new technologies and inventions that improve our lives and make our planet cleaner and safer. And I want us to push our own human boundaries to reach beyond the divides of race and region, gender and religion that keep us from seeing the best in each other.

Sometimes we have to send our young men and women into war and other dangerous situations to protect our country-but when we do, I want to make sure that it is only for a very good reason, that we try our best to settle our differences with others peacefully, and that we do everything possible to keep our servicemen and women safe. And I want every child to understand that the blessings these brave Americans fight for are not free-that with the great privilege of being a citizen of this nation comes great responsibility.

That was the lesson your grandmother tried to teach me when I was your age, reading me the opening lines of the Declaration of Independence and telling me about the men and women who marched for equality because they believed those words put to paper two centuries ago should mean something.

She helped me understand that America is great not because it is perfect but because it can always be made better-and that the unfinished work of perfecting our union falls to each of us. It’s a charge we pass on to our children, coming closer with each new generation to what we know America should be.

I hope both of you will take up that work, righting the wrongs that you see and working to give others the chances you’ve had. Not just because you have an obligation to give something back to this country that has given our family so much-although you do have that obligation. But because you have an obligation to yourself. Because it is only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you will realize your true potential.

These are the things I want for you-to grow up in a world with no limits on your dreams and no achievements beyond your reach, and to grow into compassionate, committed women who will help build that world. And I want every child to have the same chances to learn and dream and grow and thrive that you girls have. That’s why I’ve taken our family on this great adventure.

I am so proud of both of you. I love you more than you can ever know. And I am grateful every day for your patience, poise, grace, and humor as we prepare to start our new life together in the White House.

Love, Dad

    Kwako Rais Obama na barua yako ya wazi kwa mabinti zako,

    Kabla ya yote nakupongeza sana kwa kutimiza ndoto za Mwanamapinduzi na Mtetea haki zetu Shupavu “Martin Luther King Jr”. Umekuwa Rais wa kwanza mweusi (Black) wa Amerika.

    Kitendo chako cha kuwaliza “Wazungu” katika kinyang’anyiro cha Urais wa Marekani, nimekipenda sana na kimekuletea sifa kubwa sana, kiasi kwamba, hata kama unayo makosa makubwa katika utendaji wako wa kazi wa awali, sio rahisi kuyaona makosa yako. Ndiyo sababu kila mtu anakumwagia misifa isiyokufaa.

    Barua yako kwa wanao imejaa unafiki mtupu. Wewe kama kweli ni Baba mwenye roho nzuri kwa watoto, usingeruhusu watoto waliomo matumboni mwa mama zao wauliwe kwa kisingizio cha “Kutoa Mimba” zisizohitajiwa – hicho ni kitendo cha uuwaji wa watoto wasio na hatia. Mwogope Mwenyezi Mungu.

    Wewe mwenyewe kama ungeuliwa, ulipokuwa tumboni mwa mama yako kama mimba ingetolewa. Usingekuwepo hapa leo na wala “Malia na Sasha” wasingekuwepo duniani. Na usingepata nafasi ya kuwaandikia maneno mazito mazito, kuliko hata umri wao ulivyo, unayoyaandika hapa.

    Katika barua yako, eti unawatakia maisha mema na elimu bora watoto wote wa dunia, wakati tayari umeshasaini na kutoa kibali cha kutumiwa fungu kubwa la pesa (kodi za Wamarekani) za kununuliwa madawa na vizibiti mimba, visambazwe duniani kote. Tanzania ikiwemo. Kwanini usisambaze madawa ya magonjwa sugu yawasumbuao watoto wa nchi maskini?

    Rais mwenzio “uliyemfukuza” madarakani na chama chake, kwa njia ya kura (Joji Pori), alituletea vyandarua vyenye dawa ya kuzuia mbu wa Malaria nchini kwetu Tanzania. Leo wewe unajikita kutufunga kamba hapa na barua uliyoiita eti, ni ya mabinti zako. Heri ungesema ni barua ya watu wote duniani tungekuelewa.

    Maneno ya barua hiyo paragrafu ya kwanza na ya mwisho, yanakiwango cha umri wa wanao, lakini sio paragrafu zilizobaki. Ni barua ya kinafiki sana. Samahani kwa kukupa ukweli wa jinsi nilivyoiona barua hiyo. Habari ndiyo hiyo!!!!!!

    It’s Great To Be Black=Blackmannen

    Jamani huyu baba ni mfano wa kuigwa khaaaa inatia moyo hata watoto watakuwa naupendo na wazazi,sio wale kina baba wenye mfumo dume kuwa mtoto apewe malezi na mama lol!

    All the best gals muwe na adabu na upendo kwa wazazi wenu jamani!
    Wanaume jamani muige mfano huo!na sie kina mama pia muhimu kuiga huo mfano pia!

  8. ROss Says:

    Mtajigonga sana tuu, hata akivuta bangi mtasema ooh hes a wonderful crackhead!



  10. binti-mzuri Says:

    i love you obama..but am tired of you now obama. i think i need a month or two,without seeing,hearing or reading your name before i can get over it. but overrall you are a well rounded person..just overrated.i know your the first black president and it took you much courage,strength,enthusiasm and brilliance to reach where you are today..and i give you that credit,because its yours and you deserve it.ok,so now that we know that,i need to see what you’ll do basically in your term as a president before i can say you are the best president ever!… tumeshajiuliza,why are we making him such a big deal,i mean if obama was white,would there be all this commotion?probably comes down to its all about colour!..this is partly racism as well! i dont mind people celebrating the new USA where even blacks are presidents,but it doesnt neccesarily mean that he is the best president ever.. let the man get to work,then we can judge.. obama this,obama that kinda annoys me at the moment.

  11. halima Says:

    Jamani ROSS karudi tena mhhh kazi kweli kweli

  12. zedon6 Says:

    okey you did better.try to accomplish you promise

  13. chapombe Says:

    this´s that obama,yeah?let´s wait

  14. bonnie Says:

    hi, it is indeed a nice letter. however one thing is obvious that leading america is not a joke. try to learn from yr predecessors otherwise you will find it hard in the near future.

    another thing do not underestimate the power of iran, hamas and north korea


  15. No Name Says:

    wewe unayejiita BLACKMANNEN sijaona ulicho comment hapo zaidi ya kupaka!
    Nyie ndo wale wale hawana la maana walilowahi lifanya kwa jamii kazi kuponda jitihada za wenzao!
    Unadhani hao malia na sasha wana akili iliyodumaa kama yako ulivyokuwa wa umri wao!! usidhani kwa kuwa ni weusi basi na uwezo wa akili yao upo kama watoto wa kibongo, (probably wanao!) kumbuka mazingira waliomo yana challenges za kuwakuza zaidi ya hayo ya kwako/wanao. Sio waandika tu alimradi uonekane! Wchafua hewa kwa uwezo wako mdogo wa kuchanganua mambo alaahh!!
