Dear Cleveland,

I’ve grown up knowing everything about you. I have watched your sports, ate your food, and witnessed our greatness. I celebrated your championship and experienced your love. You offer many great things, but we still have so much to improve.

The city has many problems and injustices that can be improved. I think we can start at the root of the problem, which would be community relationship. In Cleveland, the leaders and police have a hard time relating to the community. When I drive to school a big thing, I experience that police protect outsiders verses the members of the community. I appreciated this protection being the outsider but then I got to know the community. There are kids I have met in Cleveland that have real aspirations and dreams. I think if the police and leaders worked to help their people, there would be a positive grown and change with the city. Cleveland has risen and needs to success and support of the people to continue to do so.

 

Sincerely,

Kevin
