Dear Cleveland,

A social injustice that I see in Cleveland is a huge gap between the city and the people. Cleveland’s inner city is breathtaking, beautiful and within the past decade I have seen the city evolve. However, I also see the troubles and poverty that define major parts of the city. While Cleveland’s ghettos are not the only ones in the country nor the most violent, it still saddens me to see my communities suffer. People all over the country, regardless of any defining quality, deserve a chance. The housing and economic issues that Cleveland face are concerning and need to be fixed. The community and the city need to bridge the gaps and help each other, because humans need cooperation to survive and succeed. There should be no accusations of people to put the blame on, because it just causes more conflicts and gridlocks. If we the people of Cleveland and the nation work together and put our differences aside, we can make huge changes to impact the next generations who will continue to improve.

From,

Louie
