For this essay, imagine you have a friend or relative who is apathetic or cynical about government and politics in the US. Then write a letter that:
(1) shows that you understand why he or she may feel that way, but also
(2) Explains why apathy or cynicism is dangerous. That is, you want to convince your friend or relative to become a more active participant in American government and politics.
Finally, (3) in the same letter, discuss how you can work together to create a political system that will reduce apathy and cynicism for everyone.
Writing a letter to a friend or relative (begin your essays with “Dear _____”), and make sure the rest of your essay is organized as a letter.
MLA format, 2 pages.
