Second-Grader Gives Principal Sack of Change, Wants to Save Teachers´ Jobs

 

Eight-year-old Maria Meneses is so worried about her teachers getting laid off, she brought a sackful of coins to her principal at Diamond Hill Elementary School in Fort Worth, Texas, to try to save their jobs.

"I thought I would bring some of my money from my college fund to my school so more teachers wouldn´t get fired because I don´t want anyone to go away," Maria said. "I had to do something to try to help them because they help me."

The principal, Ellen Verreault, and many office staff broke out into tears at the gesture. They didn´t realize that students were aware of the school district´s financial problems -- up to $80 million in funding cuts over the next two years.

Why does that matter? (I know the composition was changed then, but...no one is going to get rich from a few grams of copper)

Because is has intrinsic value. 1c is worth 3c in copper value. Its what will buy you food when the economy breaksdown. Just like pre-1971 US dollars has partially backed by Gold, you are holding the equivelant to monopoly money right now, convert to something tangible before its too late
