Do not come to America

Pricey university student,

I know you the moment had desires of studying overseas in the United States, of staying immersed in the society you have appear to admire from our flicks and Tv set displays that we export abroad. You imagined you would come to The us to discover English, to reside in the vicinity of the sunny beaches of California or the bustling towns of New York or Chicago. You imagined you would arrive below to working experience the newness and openness of The us, to dwell in the region of Hollywood and Silicon Valley, of Wall Road and Disneyland, of Harvard and UCLA, of football game titles and promenade queens and kings.

Regrettably, I am below to convey to you a person issue: Do not occur. It is not safe and sound below. We cannot protect you. Our schools have been sacrificed to the altar of guns.
