Dear Future President,

Congratulation for being the new President of the United States. Let’s get into business.

An important issue that I care about is about Black Lives Matter. I feel mad when people don’t change something that is important in people’s lives. How would you feel if somebody was going to kill you just because you are black? I would if I was president would make a change about that is happening. Let us try to see if they’re doing something that’s illegal you should arrest them, but don’t kill them. I think if you listen to this the effect will be less including with violence.

I think that another major issue is giving the homeless no place to sleep, eat, and have anybody for company.

I think we should let homeless people have a job because they need to earn money to see their family take care of pets and to let them have a good life. Let us try, to find extra jobs that people quit and let them have that job. We should pay to the homeless people 20.00 per hour because they really need it more than us or we could pay them 15.00. I think if this happens then they don’t need to ask people for money.

I fully understand the point you are going for, and yes all lives do matter, but you can’t always trust what you see on the news. I say this because homeless people, yes its sad, but some chose that life. They could have dropped out of school, or have a bad record. That affects job aspects, and with no job you get no money, and with no money comes no home, hence homelessness. I am just saying some may really need help, and others not so much. The black lives matter movement can be twisted on the news as well. I did my reasearch and some of these things aren’t as horrific as they sound. Colored people don’t get privliges and neither do white, we are in the 21st century we need to grow up and move on. I do appreciate the article though, it made some really good points and hopefully those few racist people in our world get what they deserve.

This post is so inspiring! Everyone deserves equal treatment and equal love, especially the less privileged. This really shows me what kind of person you are and how YOU will make a difference in this world; you will be a big impact, with many positive effects of this community and planet.

Dear Mathew
I am impressed by your statements in this post, I too agree that homeless deserve better treatment. Maybe even some lift up to help them get back on their feet and maybe live a steady life. In the future we may see those changes, hopefully. I would love to help homeless when im able to, and I will. Maybe you should also put this on your list. Keep up the good work, man, I hope to see more posts from you on this issue or another topic.

Dear Mathew
I am inspired by you writing about black live mater because so many people would agree with you if you shared it out to the public so many people would talk about your writing and so many people would also fight with you that black lives mater. One sentence that stood out for me was was ” how would you feel if someone killed you” that shows me that you care about other people than other than you.
