SUBMITTED VIDEOS AND PHOTOS OF PEOPLE'S EXPERIENCE WITH THE CURRENT HEALTHCARE SYSTEM
This is James Feresten. A 5th-grade Student with his Healthcare story.
James’ 5th-grade teacher assigned the class to write a 5 paragraph essay on a cause. After exploring a few causes he chose, health care for all, admitting he knew I could help him with his paper. (Smart kid:0) And I did. I broke down the difference between health insurance and health care, medical care, and mental health care, explained Medicare and Medicare for All in 5th-grade terms.
As we read and I explained, I wasn’t sure how much James was really understanding about the issues of the U.S. health insurance system and the benefits of single-payer health care systems found in other countries. But, when he showed me the opening sentence of his essay, I teared up, realizing not only did he get it, but he articulated it better than most experts. Out of the mouths of babes!
