About 19milesd

I am an 8th grader at LREI, and I'm part of the Social Justice group known as "Fighters for Fighters". We are a group of four eighth graders who are passionate about helping our returning troops and heroes who have been forgotten and fallen into poverty and homelessness. I have always been someone who got very sad thinking about those who are homelessness , but homeless veterans really touched me. I find it unfair how these men and women risked their lives for us and we don't even repay them when they return mentally, emotionally, and physically, and I really hope my group and I can really make a difference.
