The reason I am writing this letter to you today is because I am a very concerned 17 year old boy that is about to graduate and just like many other fellow peers we are having serious concerns about advancing our education beyond high school due to the costs charged by colleges/universities. Now I understand that being President comes with a lot more responsibilities then most people may think but I know that the education budget for our future should be one of the highest priorities in our country. Due to the fact that many average families and young adults cannot afford these cost it denies them a chance to further their education and push themselves to more in life. Many fall into to the slavery we now a days call low-middle class, meant to keep the dumb down and the smart up. Imagine the possibilities this country will have when all our citizens have a proper chance to pursue knowledge and careers, and with knowledge comes money which will not only better the economy but better the lives of the people and advancement of our great country.
The only thing i ask of you is to please take the cost of a good education into consideration because knowledge is a virtue. We never know we lost a great opportunity at a brilliant mind if there was no opportunity in the first place due to lack of money. Prices to attend college have been through the roof lately and schools are seeing less student and more drop outs. Depriving the youth of knowledge is denying us freedom, trapping us in a swirl of dept, violence, arrogance, and the casual petty 9-5 minimum wage shift. Knowledge can unlock the greatness in you, and anyone can be great they just a wise leader and the proper path.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely,
Bryan Fernandez Alonzo & Tracy Mourning SH, Miami-Dade County, FL
