The Declaration of Independence for kids - Break-Up Letter
DECLARATION OF RIGHTS / WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
FORMAL DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
Dear USA High School, I am 18 now, and I don't need you to structure every moment of my life during the week. I am a free-thinking individual, and I'll make my own decisions from now on. We could have lasted forever if you had just let me make more of my own decisions, but you were always interfering and letting me down.
You never let me use my cellphone any time I want. What if I was waiting for an important call from my mom? You never cared about that.
Then, you had disgusting options on the menu for lunch-- nothing was ever fresh or good! Expired milk? Hello!
Finally, you always made me late for class because your halls are too narrow for all of these students, and you didn’t give enough time for passing between classes! I was always in trouble when Spanish was on one end of the school, and gym on the other. That wasn’t fair!
I’m sorry, USA High School, we are over. I am officially breaking up with you and going off to college, where I can decide my own menu, my own schedule, and look at my phone when I want to. We are over, and I will probably never visit you again. Sincerely, Eliza Flanning, class of 2016
