Housing and Education seem to always be at the bottom when it comes to funding. We need to educate our children before prisons, and give homes to those families that can not afford it. Until we take care of our families and children in education we will continue to fail as Americans. God Bless a America......maybe if we could think this lent season about bettering, and not taking away from our children education we might be better off down the road. It starts today!
