      This is a good way for young citizens to begin their adult life... in service to their country. It helps give them experience in working with others in a way that makes this a more perfelct union and gives them character and confidence as a productive member of our society.

      Our tax dollars should be used for organizations that are helping Americans, not for pointless wars that are killing innocent people and inspiring hatred against us.

      In the aftermath of Sandy, and with rising ocean levels, superstorms and disasters related to global warming, we need organizations to step in to help fellow citizens in need to rebuild their lives. This is in addition to the programs and services already being provided to low-income folks looking to make that leap into the middle class. Please support programs like AmeriCorps to help those whose access to services some of us might take for granted is so limited.
