Read the Message! Before You Correct The Writers Grammar.

It is sad, when people judge another person on grammar, instead of what is in their heart and soul. Before you judge a persons grammar, it's best to ask yourself these questions.

1. Do they know what grades that basic Grammar and English are taught in elementary
     and High School?
     If, they find, or know, the answer, Then they should  ask themselves, what may have effected
     their learning the basics, of grammar during those periods. IE. 

     Perhaps they abused as a child, sexually, physically, such has beaten, or locked in closets.
Perhaps mentally abused, or being abandoned, They may have lived in several foster homes,    boys schools, or the Salvation Army. A child, or teenager, that may have experienced any of these abuses, or even may have suffered all that I have are listed.
These experiences can seriously interrupt these persons ability to concentrate and do   poorly in all subject, Including grammar.
2. Did that person of poor grammar, have his adult life interrupted by an illness or a disease?

3. Many people, that have had such negative experiences, such as we discussed above, have returned   latter in life, to receive a High School Diploma. Some have served in the  Military and acquired a GED and, after discharge went onto earn High School Diploma. A person that had passed English, even with a low grade in English, from either a High School or in acquiring a GED; is not required
to take an English in Adult Education to receive a High School Diploma.

4.. It's important to note,  that person with a High School Diploma, in most States, can enter Community College, is only required to take English 101.
 "English 101: First-Year Composition
 Course Description
The main purpose of English 101 is to introduce you to the conventions of academic writing and critical thinking. And while academic writing means different things to different people, there are some common elements. We write to communicate to others-whether they are colleagues, professionals in their fields, or friends. We write to convince others that our position has validity. We write to discover new things about our world as well as ourselves. For that matter, the process of writing is epistemological-a way of coming to know. Writing can become a medium for self-reflection, self-expression, and communication, a means of coming to know for both the writer and reader."

The Teachers of  English 101,  believe a student in their class, that have had, and passed, 
all required English classes, in elementary school and High School. In my case,when I went
to Community College, in my Forties, I received a D in the Winter of 1983, and had to
repeat it in Spring, and received a B. I graduated with a 3.5/4.0 GPA, receiving the
Associates  Degree in Liberal Arts Cum Laude. Then, I continued to complete my Under
Graduate Degree, and Graduate Degree, Advance Standing, while maintaining a 3.5/4.0
throughout the 3 colleges and being on the deans list every remember in my undergraduate
work. However, in graduated school, they have no Dean's List, nor do they put an
inexpensive Cum Laude sticker, on your Masters Degree.  So, in closing, to those people
that feel like judging these persons worth, leadership, value, and their Intelligence;
based only on his grammar, not considering, why that person is weak in grammar, So be it,
I, cannot change others from judging me, and feeling superior, by seeing the grammatical
errors, and ignoring the message. However, I was told as your President, I would have staff
members that could check my work, that are superior in English, and grammar, as longs as
they do not change my message to the people.
