Dear Cleveland,

We deserve better. We should not, at such a young age, be living under constant pressure. This pressure, this fear of the future places undue stress upon many students, so many expectations placed upon us, we forget how to be children. We are not perfect, but we are trying.

Trying to make a life for ourselves. We take challenging classes, fill out applications, and search for opportunities. We have hopes and dreams that we are passionate about, yet they are often disregarded to fill societies agenda. Guide us, don’t push us. As high schoolers, we should not be under this pressure. We need to forge our own path. We ask for understanding.

Understand,

Abbie
