Dear President-Elect Obama,
I am writing to you about my personal opinions and concerns as a teenager of America. I’m a Freshman at Booker High.
One issue that I feel is important-war. I believe our Americans should not be in Iraq killing numerous innocent people for no exact reason. Instead of wasting millions of dollars buying guns and weapons, we should be using it to make more occupations and prepare for the harsh future of global warming. McCain says that we are doing great in the war and that it will last for 100 years if needed. He also said that he would send more troops to Iraq if needed but he also said he’d send some troops back to America. He believes it is a good thing for us to fight in Iraq because it is “strategically and morally” good for the United States. I personally think we’re in a war we cannot win and we should just give up. Our troops should come home because we’re already in defeat.
Another issue I think is important is gay rights. I believe anyone and everyone in this world should have the right to love any sex. Gender shouldn’t affect the love you have for anyone. Our National Anthem clearly states, “Land of the free, home of the brave” meaning our Americans should have freedom of speech. In the bible it says two people of the same gender shouldn’t marry or love each other in that way meaning it’s a sin to be gay or lesbian. That doesn’t mean they’re going to change their sexual preference just because some people don’t necessarily agree with people being gay and liking them. I believe people can like whoever they want to and it doesn’t matter what gender they are. Marriage is about loving someone, not for their age, gender, color, or race.
Those are my opinions on the issues I think that are more important in America. I know I’m just a teenager but every individual has a say in what they think is right.
