Minnetonka Actor’s Essay
Ryan McCartan is the Minnetonka High School senior who’s been named a Presidential Scholar in the Arts. One part of the application process was to send in a photo of something that was significant to him, then describe why it’s significant.

Ryan sent a photo of his thigh with the insertion patch which connects his insulin pump to his leg. Here’s the essay that accompanied the picture.

    Thank you very much for acknowledging the list. Yes, we have a vibrant and creative Twitter community in Minnesota. Maybe it’s the long winters. 🙂

    It never ceases to amaze me of the ignorance of our neighbours to the south when it comes to their neighbours to the north. I watched in amazement to your news broadcast this evening re where mothers can have a year of maternity leave. It really was no surprise that you would ignore the fact that just a short 500 miles from your city the mothers in Canada are entiled to a year maternity leave. Instead your report focussed on Norway, thousands of miles away. We have enjoyed extended maternity leaves for many years. I have always been amazed at the lack of social conscience that americans have towards mothers and yound children. For one of the wealthiest countries in the world I think it is shameful that mothers are not entitled to better support when raising the citizens of tomorrow. Your omittance of Canada’s maternity benefits just reinforces American’s unwillingness to recognize that your neighbours to the North get many things better than you.
