Santa’s Condolence Letter

There has been much death in my families this year. Santa sent me a condolence letter that he said I ought to share with you. Dear Valerie,

When you get this letter, I will already be on my annual trip to deliver toys and presents. We missed you this year at the North Pole doing your usual job of helping us to track children who have moved. This has been an especially difficult year because of the policy of family separations at the border between Mexico and the United States.
