(Newser) – Wars, attacks, and Zika are bringing Lily down, according to a letter sent by the 8-year-old to President Obama and posted on Twitter. "You do no know how many politics worries I have," Lily writes. But ABC News reports Lily has a unique solution: "I think the country needs more spunk." To create a more spunky US, Lily suggests Obama go to Disney World, take a water-skiing vacation, or—undeniably most spunky of all—"wear a tie-dye shirt and shorts to something important." Obama replied to Lily's letter in a post on Medium, saying it seems Lily has "plenty of spunk to help keep our nation strong." Plus, he's not sure his family would approve of him wearing tie-dye. Obama says he expects "great things" from Lily, who wants to be a cardiovascular surgeon one day. (Read more Barack Obama stories.)
