I definitely agree with Mitch Albom's response to this girl in this article. I don't think that this girl should be entitled to get into the University of Michigan just because she is African- American. She did not reach their standards, but still insists that she should be able to go there because their African-American population of 2.7% is below the 14% in the state of Michigan. It is ridiculous that people think that they are entitled to something just because of their race. Race has nothing to do with not reaching credentials. This would be a different story if she had the credentials to get into the school.
I love this quote. It is all about teenagers waiting for someone else to do the hard things in life while you have fun all day. It's all about teaching teenagers that life is not about waiting for someday when someone will do something. That someone will be you and that someday can be today. The world doesn't owe you anything. You owe the world your time and effort. Anyone can do something great.
