In this day and age people lives are taken too soon. People give up hope too easily and aren’t willing to do what it takes to make life’s process work. Often getting too frustrated and forget that things take time and smart choices.
News on Obama Care:
Obama care will help full time workers be able to cut down hours and still take advantage of healthcare benefits. There has been a lot of fire in regards to Obama care, most criticizing and calling the program a failure. This can be described as conservatives afraid of a permanent change. The insurance program is no worse then other government resources and programs.
To be able to enjoy the world long term America needs to find alternative ways to continue what the founders of the country started. The world is changing and we’re running out of resources. Our entire country is trying to keep up with the consumer demand!
While conservatives keep saying this happened within the last five years, our economy is a result of YEARS!!!!!!! Of this sort of behavior and things started busting at the seams when we began the war and wasted lives, money, and precious time. Our nation started as a new world, meaning people with new power and greed. This is why America has become over indulged and we’re the decendents of past choices made without taking into consideration long term effects. While America is one of the greatest free nations, it still has issues it needs to work out. Thinking of new eco-friendly ways to do things may continue to help move our country in the right direction, long term.

Talented Gold Medal gymnast! She is the first gymnast of color in history to become the individual all around Olympic champion in 2012! She was also a part of the world champion team of 2011.
Justice a fighter but in this time, you have to be! At a young age making young mistakes, but once she became of age she decided to make a good life for herself and her infant son.
Its no secret that a major portion of the African American community is now suffering from lack of education/knowledge, low income, and lack of resources. If she only had the opportunity to live a little bit longer heaven only knows what she may have become. This is a growing issue in the lower income African-American communities.
