Getting Personal at the DNC

By Aurora Saldivar, Sep 12, 2012 2:02 PM

This will be my first chance to vote in a Presidential election, and I feel as if my whole world is at stake. With health care, immigration reform, cost of higher education, and our job market, I believe my future and that of my entire generation lies in the balance. The path to becoming an adult is daunting enough, and now I worry that this college degree I am struggling to get will be useless in this economy. I also worry about what the outcome of this election will mean for my Eastern Coachella Valley community. You can barely locate it on the map, but it is full of people striving to protect their health and dignity.
