Dear Future President,

Please fix this recurring problem,

Dear Future President,

     Many questions and topics swirled through brain when I asked myself what I wanted to talk to you about, but one stood out the most. Yes, it might be one of the most talked about topics that you've received, but it is important. The question is: Why do still have names like Trayvon Martin, Freddie Gray, and Eric Garner on poster boards held up by people protesting through the streets? Why do we keep having to add more? When will you or one of your important colleagues stop saying that you'll fix this and actually fix it? There has been a countless amount of times when we scroll through our news and Twitter feeds and find a new hashtag with a different name next to it. We need you and your power to make sure that this is one of the many trends that is shut down for good. We don't need stricter training, we need peace and unity between the minority community and the officials who are supposed to protect us. I believe that we, as a community, and you, as the President, can repair this one step at a time. I hope that by the time your presidency is over, we have fixed this recurring problem. I would like to end this letter in the words of Emanuel Cleaver, "There is more power in unity than division."
