A Letter to God
A 10 year boy in Alberta wanted $100 badly, he needed a new bike. He prayed for weeks but nothing happened. Then he decided to write a letter to God, requesting the $100. When the post office manager saw the letter, it was addressed “God, Canada,” he decided to send it to the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister was so amused that he instructed his secretary to send the boy $5. The Prime Minister thought that this would appear to be a lot of money to the boy and that it was a good start towards the $100.
The little boy was delighted with the $5 bill and sat down to write a thank-you note to God, which read: “Dear God – Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that you for some reason sent it through Ottawa and those commies deducted $95 in taxes.”
