The DeVos plan to change the view on education by improving and it more efficient for children`s future. I believe that is a good idea to see people committed to education and wanted the value of education to be better for America. Dick and his wife Betsy have been determined to making changes that will help America, and they have started it by giving back to the communities. One can see that it takes hard work and dedication to see the changes. I know that is not easy to go for what you want out of life. It will take time, and it will take patience. I see the work that Dick and his family does, and they only want to make the things that we need in life to be simpler, but at the same time be very beneficial to us. It is people like Dick that make me want to go out there and fight harder for people. Dick DeVos and his family are moving in the right direction.
