The world is constantly changing and progressing but without proper leadership, it will be very easy for our country to stumble

The American people cannot wait a year let alone until 2019 for healthcare

Black people just want to be treated equally

Student Voices: “Why does the mistreatment satisfy people? Does it make these people happy to make us feel like we don鈥檛 belong simply because of the color of our skin?

One of the many injustices that I am craving for you to change is the death penalty

I want my brother to be able to drive without having the fear of being pulled over

Dear President Donald Trump, Being under 18, I had no say in the election, but I would like to mention that I would not have voted for you. You have very little care for minorities or anyone under you. My family is full of minorities, and I want them to be safe. I want my […]

Student Voices: “The system is rigged. Too many people are being incarcerated, especially minorities due to the color of their skin. A way to help fix this problem would be to have police officers go through extensive training and wear body cameras at all times.”

The following is a letter of protest

America has always welcomed immigrants from all over the world

Student Voices: “About two years ago, I visited the Statue of Liberty for the first time. I can recall being at Ellis Island with my family where we looked up my great-great-grandpa鈥檚 name from all those who immigrated to the United States in 1911.

Do not break the hearts of the children who want to be together with their parents

America needs to be a safe place for anybody and everybody

I feel that nationalism can help America

Student Voices: “However, for someone who promises that 鈥淎merica now will be heard,鈥 perhaps it鈥檚 time to listen to everyone, not just your supporters. There was a time where there were such things as liberal Republicans and conservative Democrats, and people managed to cooperate to move the country forward.”
