In our society on a broaden perspective there are goals and documents set out to help everyone across the country. There are also plans that are more personally and sought out on a smaller scale. These documents may be written out by a person, a group of people, or they can be written out for a business. This compact is something that is called a manifesto. A manifesto can be written for different reasons whether it is a goal to life, or if there is a need for a change, and even if its something that help us political wise. The manifesto, in general, can motive in some way or another to expand our ideas and broaden the horizon of building a better society and change communities to reach for the goal of teamwork. A manifesto can be a plan to change our view of the world, a document that will allows everyone to get up and do something about an issue that is very important in their lives. This manifesto is a combination of my thoughts, ideas, and how I feel about the today’s modern society. Let me allow the personally feelings to flow out in the way that as an English major being in college to become a high school teacher, this manifesto was written in the way that the "teacher that is inside of me" came out; therefore this is somewhat written not just being an college student.

Diversity is among us everyday. Everyone is from a different ethic group. Accepting the fact that we go about our everyday lives with multicultural people is a good advantage to broaden the scope of accepting people into our lives, work, and school environment. I believe that we all should take the time to get to know each other outside of our race. Accepting diversity and culture is important. If someone refuses to associate with other people other than their “own people”, that person is on the road to discrimination. Diversity helps build up a friendly, sustainable community for everyone to enjoy. Not only will acceptance of diversity into our lives will help us on a personally level, but it will also give way to a better government. To believe that if there were to be different government officials from a variety of backgrounds, and they came to work together to build a better America with open minds is to say that this is what we need around here. The principle of accepting diversity and expanding our minds to other culture will allow some of the common issues dissolve. I’m sure that individuals are exposed to the negative stereotype that surfs among our community. If everyone would embrace the culture and people around them, then we would not have to worry about people being different colors, but rather as a person. Let them be a person that wants to be a better citizen in this country. Let that person want to accept that we have people who cannot speak English, but wants to be apart of our community and not feel like an outcast. Let that person of a different background share with others what they know. Sharing with each other is gaining knowledge – the knowledge to accept that we have diversity in the country. I do not think that diversity exists in our lives, but it does exist in the community and throughout the city.

Going to school from elementary to graduating high school and going off to college is a standard path in life. Most people are playing a big part of our education while others really do not care. The future of education will be in the hands of future leaders. Education is like a button on a coat. It is something everyone needs to make it through today’s world. Everyone should care about education, the schools, the teachers, and just the concept of being educated will be like in a few years. As we all know that a mind is a terrible thing to waste. We should make sure that our schools are safe enough for each student to spend his or her day in school being taught by a teacher without any disruptions or a something major that can harm the safety of someone. It is important to make sure that we are getting the best education we can get. The principle of education can be stated in different ways because everyone has their own goal of succeeding students to learning using different methods and standards. Let’s take in consideration that the mottos and mission statements of an individual school will be the key principles of gearing towards a better education for the generations to come. Agreeing with this is showing that you are on the same page as I am and that you are going to have a role in a local school district, state wide or national education. All of us can play a part in better education and making successful citizens not only for our own selves, but also for others.

Being a better person is a good thing. Everyone can not be perfect nor can they be a stuck up aristocrat. I believe in just enjoying life to the fullest. If parents see that their children are happy, then it should be taken that they should be happen as well for their children. I believe that when everyone else is happy or I have done something to make them happy it makes me a better person to know that I have affected them in a certain way. In other words, we need leaders. Leaders that will lead others to better themselves whether it is personally or within the community. Leaders are to set examples so we call be become decent people and go through the process of changing lives, or if not changing lives, influence of changing something from a bad habit to a good one. Like most people would say, everything must begin from within the family. The principle of being a leader in your family that leads to happiness will lead to the family members to become leaders to better themselves so that can be successfully role models to other people in the community and across the country should be something adapted as a personally goal.

No matter what we do in life we should learn how to become a better person. Yes, there will be the good days and the days where we are not ourselves, but we should not give up. Building a better society is a goal that should be throughout thoroughly. Not everyone will have the same ideas, but at least they will be set on the same mind frame of doing something positive improve our global community. My manifesto is a bit long, but the goal is to express what I think and feel to everyone that there is a time to become a team and realize that there is work that must be done.
