Class of 2011, We were not a class to make a statement. We were not a class to close off the rest of the world and retreat within ourselves.

Apprehensively, I watch as the scantrons are handed out. Mine comes to rest in front of me, a daunting reminder of how unprepared I am for this test. The answer slots bore holes into my soul.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Who ever came up with this phrase, clearly had no idea how horribly painful words really can be. “Fag.” “Queer.” “Homo.” Words uttered, with the intent of being used as an insult every day in schools all across the nation....
