Something is indeed wrong with 42 million Americans suffering from functional illiteracy and another 50 million not being to read past the 4th grade level. Seventy percent of prisoners are illiterate, while 85% of juvenile offenders are marginally literate. Forty three percent of these illiterates in society live in poverty. Our government feeds 43 million on food stamps.
Do you want to be a statistic from the previous paragraph? By my calculations, there was only a one chance in 10000000...there are 34 zeros...that you were even born a human being. The fact that you are alive is a miracle. What a waste to squander, possibly, your final opportunity. President Obama wants you to stay in school until the age of 18. Then, impress everyone, especially yourself, go on to vocational school or college. More so, when you actually work for a living, make a positive difference for Planet Earth and Humanity. Yes, this sounds like a high school commencement address, but you get the point. I hope.
