Flashback I

Dear George:

I understand that you got the Popular, and Electoral votes, but it doesn't mean that the Democrats don't count as well. Only 17% of the people between ages 18-29 voted this year, so if these individuals voted, you might not have won today. I really urge you to make you decisions, not according to what you think is right, but according to what the country wants. Our country used to be respected by other countries, maybe even loved when Kennedy served as president, but do you see what is happening now? We need good foreign relationships if we don't want terrorism. I also want to bring up the subject of abortion. This may not be true, but I think that it is because of your religion that you are choosing to not have abortion. You can argue that you are killing a partial life, aren't you also doing the same in war? Also, if a incapable individual/family is taking care of a child, we don't know what is going to happen to that child. Most children who are not loved turn to a life of crime because they don't have any support. Would you want this to happen? If you are reading this, thank you very much for your consideration, I know that most people or presidents wouldn't listen to a mere 12 year, but I'd like to say that everyone in this country should have a voice, and here’s mine.

Age 12



Please do not use comments for personal attacks. One of the goals of this project is to allow these open letters to foster civil (and civic) debate, so please keep personal attacks to yourselves, even if you disagree with the letter/comments here. Better yet, write a letter yourself.

    Stay in school honey when you grow up and look back and your views as most of us adults have you will see at your age you really don't understand the real world. The only thing these people understand is fear and at one time America was the most feared and respected country in the world. It wasen't untill we started with the lets talk about it stuff that we began to attacked. If only Bush was as much a hard ass as Reagan, oh well he is still better than Kerry. The best way to stay out of a fight is to make everyone think your a pit bull. If you act like a chawawa you will get stepped on like on. As far as abortions their are thousands of good families that would love to have a baby and can't its a shame that people kill them with out even giving them a chance to have a good life.

    I think young people should be heard. You haven't reached an age yet where your vision has been blurred by all the brainwashing you'll be recieving in this media-centric age. I find talking to young people refreshing and their opinions not as biased(as adults)yet by today's constant barrage of propaganda and rhetoric. Not stuck in a rut yet. Eventually , if you haven't already, you'll have to pick a side, neither of which with a single redeaming personality or agenda.
