Education opened doors that I couldn't have even imagined when I was a little girl growing up on the South Side of Chicago. There are kids all over the country who are as hungry as I was to learn, and I know you're committed to giving every child that same chance.
The power of a good education can lift people from humble circumstances into a life they could never have dreamed of, Diane, which is why it is our job to make sure every boy and girl in this country -- and around the world, even -- is getting the quality education he or she is entitled to.
We know what's possible when we empower our young people and offer them opportunities to grow. We've fought for student loan reform, so our kids aren't entering the workforce with crippling debt, we've increased high school graduation rates across the country, and through the Affordable Care Act, we've made it easier for young adults to access health care. But if we want to see more, we have to work together to make it happen. We've got to support leaders who understand how important this is, and who will inspire new conversations about ways to move forward -- because solving our education crisis isn't just about resources. It's also about attitudes and beliefs, Diane.
It's up to all of us to make sure our leaders are committed to improving the quality of life for every American and opening doors that were once closed. So if you're ready to keep up all the amazing work we've done, pitch in $17 or whatever you can to elect Democrats who understand that education truly is the key to growing our middle class and giving our young people brighter futures.
