Have you ever been hungry but didn't have money to buy even piece of bread. Or felt so sick that you need to go to the doctor but you can't afford it. Many families wake up every morning knowing that they can't bring food to the table for their children to eat, or take their sick child to the doctor but can't because they can't afford it.

Everyday the rich gets richer while the poor gets poorer. If the rich started giving more to the needed we would have less people being poor. And with less

building the education system since 3500 BC when the first academy was built. Of course it has; it has been thousands of years. Even comparing the education system today with the way it was one hundred years ago like the dean of Columbia School of Journalism Nicholas Lemann did in his entry in The New Yorker is pretty far fetched. He stated that only eight and a half percent of Americans had a high school degree a hundred years ago, and now there are roughly one sixth of the population in high schools…
