I Can't Shut Up Today

Sorry, I must have a lot to say today! Three posts in one day????

And the title is ironic, as tomorrow is the Day of Silence. I found these words on their website:

Under the Constitution, public schools must respect students’right to free speech. The right to speak includes the right not to speak, as well as the right to wear buttons or T-shirts expressing support for a cause. School officials may not censor a student just because they disapprove of the student’s ideas,because the student’s speech makes them uncomfortable or because they want to avoid controversy.

OK. But I can't help but be reminded of this.



  1. Truth is Brenda, many schools promote the idea that the Constitution is null and void at the schoolhouse door.

    I've seen it time and time again. The case of Brittany McComb is just one of many.

  2. Oh but those freedoms will be allowed today in the name of DOS. And I can't wait to see how the media handles it.

  3. Wow...I have never seen that before. How awful for her for speaking the truth as she should and being ridiculed like that by the administration!! God knows her efforts. Situation like these should not deter us from speaking our truths....

    Hopefully, things will change soon :) We all just need to unite!

  4. Oh, I could write you such a long heartfelt reply...


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
