WATCH: Six-Year-Old Asks Obama to Bring Syrian Child From Viral Image to His House

You surely remember Omran Daqneesh, the soot-covered Syrian child the entire world watched being pulled from the rubble of his own after it was leveled by an airstrike. Kate Bolduan probably hasn’t forgotten him and neither has one six-year-old from Scarsdale, New York.

The White House released a video of the kid, who is named Alex, reading his letter…

…and there is even a special shot of President Barack Obama reading it, too. He read it aloud this week at a summit on refugees at the U.N. Then, he talked about how Alex is too young to have yet learned hate or suspicion and mentioned that we could all learn from the boy.

The Facebook video has been viewed over 6 million times.
