"What does labor want? We want more school houses and less jails. More books and less guns. More learning and less vice. More leisure and less greed. More justice and less revenge. We want more...opportunities to cultivate our better nature." - Samuel Gompers, founding President of The American Federation of Labor
I was very fortunate that to very important people in my life emphasized the importance of education - my mother and father. My education has afforded me opportunities that other people didn't have, and I'm grateful for that. As political tensions around the world elevate, it's increasingly important to educate our children to give them the opportunity to make the most of their lives and give them the tools to better themselves by applying what they've learned about the world. Education levels the playing field.
