Dear Santa,

You may not remember me, but I remember you. Mommy told me that writing this letter to you would be a waste of time, which I could be using to make more breads or pies but I know that you can help.

All I want for Christmas Santa is for Katniss Everdeen not to cry anymore. Every day walking home from school, she clutches her books and weeps silently into her sweater. Please Santa make Katniss happy again, bring her daddy home, and her mommy well again. I am not supposed to know about that part but I overheard one of the officers talking bad about the "Everdeen women". I just want Katniss to smile, and sing. She has a pretty voice Santa, I am sure you have heard it.

If you do me this favor Santa, I will make sure to leave you an extra batch of cookies for the trip back to the North Pole.
