I has a happy!

Dear Johnny,

We live in an imperfect world.  There are so many wrongs out there, sad things and people and places, things you don't even suspect about.  I will do anything in my power to protect you from those things, but I am aware that no matter how hard I try, sooner than later you will be exposed to the bad side of life, and the best I can do is to raise you to be strong and smart and good, so that you can deal easily with it.

And Johnny, I have a complete trust in you.  You seem well equipped from the very start - laughter is one of the best ways to persevere in a crazy world like ours:
