I'm writing in regards to the terrible event that occurred at Hudson High School Friday, April 25. It was "The Day of Silence," which is a day that the Gay/Straight Alliance group has in honor of gay people who are discriminated against just for their sexual orientation.

A group of kids from all grades made T-shirts that said "pro-straight" and other hurtful things on them such as "It's Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve" and "Born Straight." Throughout the day these students were making fun of gay people and mocking the special day to end the discrimination.

It is not right to discriminate here in America and especially in Hudson High School. According to the 14th Amendment to the constitution, all men are created equal, even if they happened to fall in love with their same gender. That should be well understood, especially by students in Hudson.

This event was hurtful to me because I have a lot of respect and dignity for Hudson High as well as the people in it. I was shocked to learn that they could openly discriminate against their classmates and every other gay person around the world and still hold their heads up high in the hallways carrying that message.
