As seniors get used to their last year of high school, counselors begin inviting guest speakers from different colleges to motivate students, but this seems inadequate in guaranteeing a higher high school to college transition rate. Plenty of times, adults tell students, “More education equals more money.”
Over 150 demonstrators gathered on Thursday outside the Robert E. Coyle Federal Building in Fresno – with two different reasons to organize.
The protest, which was planned over three months in advance, was originally the brainchild of Peace Fresno in an effort to support the “October 2011” demonstration in Washington, D.C., which was organized to remember the 10 year anniversary of the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan.
Right now, I’ve only got about $1.12 in my wallet. I don’t really like money. I never really have. But no matter how hard I try to avoid it, it always comes back to slap me in the face. It always shouts out “You need me. You want me. You can’t do a damn thing without me.”
