Senior Year has been hectic and there has been no time to blog what so ever. On the other hand, I do have plans to travel and possibly study in the EU(Germany or Amsterdam), this blog will be very active then. For now, it’s not very active 😀
Of course the US Government is making budget cuts to travel abroad programs, such as CBYX. If you don’t know what CBYX is, it’s a program that bridges the relations between the USA and Germany by sending ambassadors/young adults for a year abroad to spread culture and peace throughout the international community. Of course, we want to spend more money on war and guns (anti-peace), whereas sending good people throughout the world, building trust and long term relationships is a waste of money. It blows my mind as well as the other CBYX’ers over the past 51 years. More that 25,000 people have studied abroad in this time.
As a personal example, we are required to each do ambassador project(s). I completed one at the kindergarten and to more than 6 classes at my school in Germany. I’m not saying this to brag. I’m saying this to say that more than 100 young adults and 30 children learned about the United States and our culture. 130 more people who understand us and want to travel here, that’s not counting the people they tell. That’s not counting the newspaper, relatives, host family, community and other people who our influences by my story to travel here and see what’s different. If each person in the program did even half of that, that’s more than a million or two people who have learned, overheard or read about the program and learned about the USA. People who might come to the United States, live here and so on. This increases international relations. Not fighting wars everywhere in the world and terrorizing others. That’s what Rome did. It crumbled.
Stop the nonsense and petition, petition for our nation because each vote counts. I know many people say, this really makes a difference and you know, we all think it’s not true and yeah right, like my vote will count, but somehow, for this, it really is different. Your vote matters!!!
Create Peace and sign this petition. It WILL take less than 30 seconds guaranteed.
Please. Do it for the future. And send an email out about it. Tell other people! SPREAD THE WORD NOW. They may not care, but they might sign it if you persist. Your fighting for peace.
