Dear _____________

I am writing to you today concerning the recent, and drastic, rate changes for student loans. I am certain that my voice is not the only one to have brought this critical issue to your attention, so I urge you, as an official who is dependent on the public vote to hold office, to listen closely.

We are the future. We are the ones sacrificing daily to ensure a brighter tomorrow for this country. We are, the ones who will one day depend on those we lifted to greatness, to hold us safely when we are no longer capable of doing so ourselves. We are all of those things.

We are the people.

We ask you __________, respectfully. Who gains by allowing banks to push our future generations further behind the starting line of life? As your well informed constituents, we are well aware of the tremendous fiscal gain that accompanies the doubling, or more, of college loan interest rates. We are also aware, that as well paid and influential figures, you may not be as concerned about these increases as the general public, and with all due respect, they may in fact result in some personal benefit, be it monetary or owed obligation. Forgive us this assumption. Given the massive irresponsibility in not tending to the needs of our country, and the future generations that will inherit it, and therefore fill these crucial needs, we are hard pressed to find any reason as to why you, our elected representative, would not raise your voice vehemently against this assault on common sense and patriotic responsibility.

This letter serves two purposes ____________. The first being to inform you that the youth of this nation is not nearly as uninformed and apathetic as popular media often portrays us. And second, to remind you that we speak. Often. Through mediums capable of mass transmission undreamed of before now. Not only that, we speak to our parents, we speak to our grandparents, and our neighbors. Our county may have left Mayberry behind decades back, but our sense of community remains as strong as it ever was. Make no mistake __________, we have had enough, and if you continue to sabotage our futures, and the future of our nation, prepare to see a significant shift in the voter numbers and demographics next election. Needless to say, shifted unfavorably towards your campaign.

We are waiting for common sense to prevail, and we are watching to make sure you employ it. We urge you to do the right thing, and respectfully remind you that despite its faults, we truly love our nation, and hope that you too, love it enough to give it the strong future it deserves.
