Open your eyes to the real America-Letter to the Editor

Posted: Wednesday, Feb 20th, 2013

Open your eyes to the real America

Itís been more than a week now since President Obama talked to the country. He knocked it out of the park. The only point is will the people who actually run America let anything happen? Unless youíre stupid, you know the president of America is just a body. A figurehead to make people believe their vote mattered.

He spoke of equal education for all children, regardless of their race and where they live. That will never happen in America. Too many loopholes in our system. Like it or not, knowledge is power. Equal education would rock the boat, and the people who actually run America will never let that happen.

My great grandmother and grandfather werenít able to vote. They could hardly read because certain people kept them from having books. Thatís the real America. Open your eyes, the same thing is happening now. The people in power are just doing it in a different way. They stop school funding for the inner-cities. They go private with the schools, make it too expensive for average people and then make up their own rules.

The same old story, just in a different wrapper.

Weíre lucky here in Page. All of our children have a chance to get a good education if they want it. Like President Obama said: We as American citizens need to forget about the Democrats/Republicans and work together as a country.
