To: Honorable President
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W
Washington DC 20500
Dear Mr Obama,
I am writing this letter to ask for assistance in furthering my daughter’s education. I am a mother of three smart and hard working children;two daughters and a son. As a mother I am trying my best to provide my children with everything they need but there is a limit to how much one can do when working at McDonald’s for two or three hours for one day a week only on sunday. My self and three children are not from North America, we are from Guyana South America. We were brought here by my mother to live the “American Dream”. However, since coming to this state we have not seen not one bit of the “American Dream”. My mother was not able to provide for us because she has her  bills to pay so I signed up for public assistance while seeking a job.
In June of 2014, my eldest daughter graduated high school ranked 4th in her class. She had held the spot of second rank all throughout high school until her senior year. During her senior year, she  managed balanced school, community college classes, internship, college application, tutoring, babysitting and her senior paper. She applied to more than 10 colleges and got accepted into more than half, two of which were HBC’s. Among the 7 schools she got into, was her dream school. A school that fit all of her requirements so without much thinking she choose to attend that college. We were aware that we would not be able to afford the college so, my daughter filled out many scholarships from the moment she started her senior year. She did her FAFSA packet and got a huge amount. However, she still had over thirteen thousand to pay on her own. Knowing this my daughter kept filling out scholarships after scholarships. She looked for jobs over the summer but did not get hired.
In August of 2014, she started her freshman year at her dream university. She loved it there since the first day. She knew that she did not want to leave so she looked for scholarships, enter into different monthly scholarship drawings and looked for jobs. My daughter ended up interning for the governor of the state her school is located in. She loves her internship and loves the school. Like I said before, she kept trying to find ways to pay the thirteen thousand needed for her to stay. She got no responses from scholarships until this day, now she is faced with the reality that she is going to have to  leave her dream school and work to pay off the loans she took out along with the thirteen thousand she owes.
The things is, my daughter will be the first in our family to graduate from University, she is the first to get into so many schools in my family. She would be the first make her dreams come true. As the eldest, she has siblings looking  up to her. My second daughter is will graduate high school in next year and wants to attend college like her sister. I am proud of my daughter no matter what she does, my  entire family is proud of her because we know how hard she worked to get where she is today. However, this is not about us. If my daughter has to leave her dream college, she would be broken. When she found out that she would not be able to register next semester, she was heart broken. she did not talk anyone for an entire day. When i finally got to talk to her on the phone, she was crying on the phone. she started to question her decision, she called her self selfish for deciding to go to school at Willamette. I told her that the family would try their best to help and she started crying more. At one point she said that there is no way to meet the American dream, “it was create for people with money.” It hurts to see her like this.  
Since finding out about this, my daughter kept filling out applications and even created a gofundme account. She is desperate to stay at Willamette and is doing everything she can to stay there with minimal help from us the family. I can’t watch my daughter’s dreams get crushed. My daughter has a resume to prove her how hard working she.
We are asking for your help in helping my daughter continue her education. My daughter is a brilliant young women that has overcame a lot to get here. We can give you contacts of people who have worked with her so that you can hear for yourself how much this would mean to her. My deserves a chance at thef best education she can get just as much as the next person. It would be sad to see that she came this far for nothing just because her family can’t give her better. This is not for us, we are asking that you send some financial assistance directly to her university.
For you to get to know her better, I am attaching a piece she wrote in her senior year and her resume.
As a family, we would appreciate any type of help we could get.
                                                                                             Sincerely,
                                                                                          Olivia Romulus/Park

Why is the republican program so pathetic that republicans have to lie constantly? You'd think they would get tired of that.

It does not really matter what a person's job or position is. Regardless borders, religions, and races, We all human beings should love each other, encourage each other, enlighten each other, protect each other, support each other, and serve each other. That is why societies emerged. And that is the key of survival. God bless us, all huaman beings.

Harry Paul from New York was born with congenital scoliosis, a curvature of the spine that forced him to endure more than a dozen operations growing up. That's why starting in his freshman year of high school, he worked to research a new type of spinal implant that can grow along with a child so that it doesn't have to be constantly replaced or adjusted with surgery → wh.gov/science-fair ‪#‎WHScienceFair‬

As usual, when a conservative is proved to be factually wrong they go for personal attacks without ever conceding the fault.
