This I Believe...


 Theodore Roosevelt once said, “A man who has never gone to school may steal a freight car, but if he has a university education he may steal the whole rail road". I agree with that statement, for I believe that education is the key to success and knowledge. Therefore using this key, I will liberate myself from ignorance. Education is important to me for the reason that there was a bond between it and me. Since a was a little child and saw people that I care about drop out of school and started working at a young age with comments such as like this, “finally I'm not wasting my time in school" but later on I would hear them say what a terrible mistake they had made. That is when I decided that I wanted to get an education.

  My expectation for education then was only to finish college on any carrier. Even if I did not like it, I would heave a carrier on well anything, “At least I would go to college" I use to think. However, as I grew older my way's of thinking changed and said to myself, “wait if I studied something that I do not enjoy, it will be no different if I drop out", so that’s when I became passionate on what I was going do with my education. I started to enjoy learning; it was a thrill for me to learn more than I already knew. For every simple thing that it was, I did not care as long as it made me more knowledgeable, and helped me get to college and someday have an education.

  I, Leo, believe that education has the power to destroy ignorance, to change lives, and to help anybody in the world to fulfill their dreams.
