The

OPINION

of MARIST HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

“ALL LIVES MATTER!” That phrase has been said too many times over the past two years. Citizens have been fighting …because society does not know how to put their pride aside. They feel the need to lash out and “prove who is better”… 

a hate crime is …violent, born from prejudice or intolerance toward an individual …The United States …is supposed to be a place of freedom, unity, and equality. Why are its citizens bringing each other down? … they destroy the American Dream as well as tear the economy down… This has to be stopped, we all have to come together and stand up for what is right. The youth is the future, this generation and all the ones after us have to be on the same page. We can change the world, it does not have to be drastic, but every step helps” - Taylor Tunstall Class of 2019
