It is unfortunate that the pusillanimous action of some biased people can besmirch the good reputation of the town of Edison by vilifying Chinese and Indian American immigrants with an anonymous mailer.

Money magazine chose Edison as the 19th most desirable place in the nation to live and bring up children, in large measure due to its demographic diversity. Based on rigorous analysis of key statistics of the U.S. Department of Education, K12 Niche has ranked the Edison School District within the top 25 districts in New Jersey. Recently, an Indian-American student came out first nationally in the Geographic Bee; another student won the prize on Teen Jeopardy; and our students are tops in the country and in the world in “Olympics of the Mind”.

Twenty-seven students from one district high school with a preponderance of Asian students are National Merit semi-finalists — more than any other high school in Central Jersey and probably in the State of New Jersey. On the intimidating PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) test, Edison students score 20 to 30 points higher than the state average.

Asian-American immigrants in Edison have a passion to succeed in the United States, and to guide their children to high achievement in education. Writing as a private citizen, I can say that we are proud of all our ethnic groups in Edison, and cherish our Asian-Americans as good neighbors and leaders for today and tomorrow.

My girlfriend and I were happy as far I could tell and I never thought that we would break up. When her cousin died in a tragic car accident she went to her family in Mexico for a week. I couldnt go because I was in the middle of entertaining out of town clients for work. She did not seem to be upset that I could not go so I let her be. The next thing I knew, she reconnected with an old friend from high school that she had a crush on years back and they started to have an affair! I had no clue what was going on until she came back from Mexico. She proceeded to see this old friend and I caught her and her old friend one night hugging each other. I confronted her and she told me the truth about what happened. We broke up and went our separate ways. Neither of us fought for our relationship. I was angry and decided not to be upset about it and just keep it moving. Then after about few months of no contact with her I became sad. I wanted her to tell me she wanted to be with me and not her old friend. I contacted Dr.Ewan for a love spell and he truly helped me! he was able to get her to miss me she wanted us to get back together again. She had lot of regrets and felt bad for not fighting to keep me and for cheating in generally. she cherish our relationship so much more now and we are together now! You can also get your lover back with the help of Dr.Ewan contact him through whatsapp +2349057353987 his email: covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com
