Dear Leaders of America,
My name is Julia Aleman. I researched throughout my time about the attack in Charlottesville. During the Charlottesville rally counter protesters marched along to defend their rights as people and protest. White nationalists did not like the idea of these counter protesters walking down their streets. Harm was handed over to the anti-racist protesters, by a white supremacist. In my search for the story, I gained more of an advantage of some footage from an actual protester in the scene of the crash. The man crashed over the crowd of people, causing him to murder one person and at least 28 injured.
My experience growing up as a teenager in America was actually quite difficult for me in my time, and even is still now. Before I even started school, everything in my surroundings were a caution. If I spoke aloud, I’m disrespecting someone else. If I need something, I’m clingy. Kids used to tell me that only certain people get to speak whatever they wanted without anyone else’s approval. Up until now, I sometimes manage to keep my mouth shut and become polite to everyone that walks up to me. Using my voice is the only strong tool that I use in public, but there’s always a breaking point, and I have more courage than I ever did. Our voice is the most important piece that makes us who we are.
I want our elected leaders to prioritize into education. It’s the key for us to become someone we want to be and for us to be prepared for the real world. It provides students with ideas, organization and skill.
One solution would be students in our generation in schools still do not have the manual resources that they need. Public schools should be funded more, that way we wouldn’t have to worry about our supplies being empty. It’s important to have what we need to be able to reach to success.
I’d wish America would stop being such a big problem. We shouldn’t be involved in other countries business, worry about ourselves. People in this economy deserve a better country and a much better leader. I would wish that everyone would mind their own little things, keep their distance when wanted and every single person has a right to be themselves.
Thank you for listening and for your understanding.
