2016 was a very trying year. It was President Obamas las year in office, police killings seemed to increase more and more, and Trump won the 2016 election. While all of this news was very devastating, one event truly stuck out to me the most. The 2016 $1 Billion dollar lottery. The jackpot was over $1 Billion dollars and it was the highest jackpot in history. Normally I think about what I would do with all of that money, but other thoughts ran through my mind. What would have happened if that money went towards education? What if that money went towards low-income communities? What if that money went towards raises for the working class? All of these questions consistently went through my mind, and in today’s economy, I wish we had it for the community.
