 Little Melissa comes home from 1st grade & tells her father that they learned about the history of Valentine's Day.  
'Since Valentine's Day is for a Christian saint, and we're Jewish,' she asks, 'Will God get mad at me for giving someone a valentine? 
Melissa's father thinks a bit, then says: 'No, I don't think God would get mad. 
Whom do you want to give a Valentine to?' 
'Osama Bin Laden,' she says.  
'Why Osama Bin Laden?' her father asks in shock.  
'Well,' she says, 'I thought that if a little American Jewish girl could have enough love to give Osama a Valentine, he might start to think that maybe we're 
not all bad, and maybe start loving people a little bit. And if other kids saw what I did and sent Valentines to Osama, he'd love 
everyone a lot. And then he'd start going all over the place to tell everyone 
how much he loved them, and how he didn't hate anyone anymore.'  
Her father's heart swells and he looks at his daughter with new found pride.. 'Melissa, that's the most wonderful thing I have ever heard.' 
'I know, ' Melissa says, 'and once that gets him out in the open, the Marines 
could just blow his brains out!   Problem Solved!
