Dear Cleveland,

We have a problem. We have people that are hungry, people that can’t make rent, people that have to choose between heat in the winter or hospital bills, and people that work more than two jobs just to stay afloat. Poverty is engulfing numerous communities right outside of downtown. These people deserve better; they deserve to live comfortably with food in their belly and children receiving college education. We cannot be complacent as our fellow brothers and sisters are struggling to live. Though job triaging or free education we must give these people the opportunity to make a good life for themselves; an opportunity they haven’t been given before. Through food banks and free clinics, we must help the underprivileged. We must be generous and giving to end this problem. So that all of Cleveland can be equal so that all of Cleveland can have a good life.

Sincerely,

Raima
