Letter to the Editor

I was feeling inspired after my last government class. So, I decided to write a Letter to the Editor. This is just the first draft, but I wanted to see what you all thought and if you had any changes that you think I should make. Thanks a bunch!

Our country was founded on the Puritan Work Ethic. Which means that our Founding Fathers worked for work's sake, not for the money. We are raising a culture that tells our young people to get the best job they can, so that they can make the most money they can. We’re teaching them to live for Fridays, instead of living for Mondays. We’re choosing jobs that will give us the most glory, instead of doing the most good. Our beliefs determine our character. Our char actor determines our behavior. If we believe that being lazy is OK, then we will form a lazy character. If we form a lazy character, our society will in turn become lazy. In 1933, Adolf Hitler was sworn in as the Chancellor of Germany. The German people didn’t think their vote mattered. They didn’t think that letting one man have a little extra power would effect them. We are becoming that people. A nation of people that don’t think our votes matter. The young people of this nation must rise to the occasion of voting this November if we don’t want to see a serious fall in our society.
