What I, An Average College Student, Would Change...

I, an average college student, would change:

The people who judge before they know,

The people who leave animals outside without proper shelter in winter,

The people who drop out  of school because of behaviour or lifestyle choices,

The people who beg for welfare when they are able-bodied,

The people who use welfare for drug or alcohol money, 

The people who have wealth and hoard it all,

The people who have nothing and hoard trash,

The people who cannot love, live, or laugh.  

I would make it so that all of these people can love, live, and laugh, at least once more in life, 

before they drop back into the weary darkness of

everyday life.
