Dear Leaders of America,
My name is Bertha Saavedra. I had made research about the Charlotteville attack. I had learned that still in the year 2017, people can still get hurt because of their beliefs. My experience as a teenager in America has been pressuring because not a lot of adults can trust us to do great things in life. In my experience almost every time I have an opinion people just talk over me or just tell me to be quiet. That’s why a lot of teenagers just rather not speak and keep their ideas to themselves. I mean us teenagers are the future of America. We learn from mistakes and we come up with ideas for the future. We are the FUTURE.
For my fellow elected leaders, we pay taxes. Those taxes are used to pay you and serve us. Not serve yourselfs. We pay you to do your job. Listen to the people, listen to what they need and ideas they have, take that in consideration. Right now the problem you should prioritize is education. Education is everything, it’s key to life. It helps you to prepare for the real life, reality. To defend yourself with facts and not just non-sense. To show how much you know and your intelligence, so people won’t underestimate you. To know from right and wrong. To not be scared towards other people’s ideas. Education should be free. A solution is to fund money to schools especially public schools to provide students with better resources. The government should take part of this solution.
I would like to see America equal in the future. I wish there was no hate, but it’s impossible to control what people believe in but everyone is different. In the future i wish for everyone having the same opportunities no matter legal status, gender identity and so on. May I remind you America supposed to be the land of opportunities.
