I was amazed the letter writer could believe that one negative incident by a few should destroy a great reputation. I guess it is possible for a few bad decisions to ruin the good in the eyes of some people in this community. Whereas I found the spray painting disgusting, I do not take any blame for it. I didn't do it, and most of my fellow classmates didn't do it. I am more angry that some in our community will blame me and my classmates by our association to a recognized group. I find that attitude disgusting, if not downright dangerous.
I suggest the letter writer and those who feel the same come to our school and take a constructive look and then make a judgement. Do your homework. God knows we do. We really aren't that bad, I promise.
