Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing to you as the Editor regarding recent events. I am a teacher in New York City where I recently observed-along with many Americans-the events happening during the Republican convention. I feel compelled to share this account as an encouragement to get out the vote on November 2nd. I hope you will print this.Best regards,
J. Wallace 244 Fifth Ave. #2731 New York, NY 10001 212-252-2826 email@example.com
Letter to the Editor:
I’m haunted by the look on this student’s face. She’s just being arrested and she’s partially turning away from the CNN crew to avoid being ID’ed while trying to make a statement. In spite of her anxiety she manages to communicate clearly and effectively to the camera, posing the question, “When are people going to wake up and realize what’s happening in America? When are they going to start caring?”
And we do! Young adults! With the right to vote! She understands what is at stake. Do you? Her group never apparently made it to the convention area. She and her small group from out of state were kept out of sight and out of sound of conventioneers. Kept off the TV screen. With newscasters referring to the protesters almost tongue-in-cheek, like it’s an inside joke. The Republicans are content and confident that you will yawn and change the channel. That this peaceful student protester arrested means nothing? Please don’t let her down. Please don’t let America down. The time to act is NOW. Register to vote at your post office. Use a right you still have. Vote November 2nd!
