When are you going to stand up for yourself, your future your community? When are you going to grab your keys?
When are you going to let society know that just because you grow up poor, just because you have free or reduced lunch, just because you are on welfare or food stamps, you live in the projects or you come from a broken or dysfunctional home that doesn’t mean that the bar should be lowered, Just because you have a disability or learn differently that doesn’t mean you can’t read well or speak proper grammar.
Stop waiting for others to give you standards, stop waiting for someone to tell you to pick up a book and read it
You check your GPA, Check your transcript, schedule an appointment with your counselor, meet with your teachers, your standards, or your expectations of your-self
Stop settling for what society says.
I say… you have potential! so let yours shine through.. You have what it takes to be a success and not a failure
