Dear President-Elect Trump:
Congratulations! You are now our president and possibly the most powerful person on the planet.
Your responsibility as a role model for people around the world, especially our young people and children, is immense.
You are a compelling leader. The world finds you fascinating. You have a once-in-a-lifetime and unique opportunity to influence billions of people.
We are all watching you with hope.
Who are you?
My wish list for inspiring the world to be a better place:
Good luck in the next four years.
