When looking back at Stephen Decatur High School, three words come to mind: pride, camaraderie, and unity. The school truly embodies its motto: The Decatur Way: Pride, Achievement, Respect, Responsibility. Whether it is sports, academics, volunteering, or just the school pride that unites us as one student body, our school was the best, is the best, and will always be the best. It does not matter if we are black or white or rich or poor, we are ALL Seahawks.

It is malicious, irresponsible, and disgusting that The Daily Times has capitalized on the actions of the few and concocted a race issue at Stephen Decatur. The situation has been blown largely out of proportion. Students are stressed. Alumni are enraged. Teachers and administrators are being attacked. They find it difficult to go to work every morning because they are afraid of what criticism they will face that day.

The Daily Times' most recent post of a video of a fight including names and personal information is mind boggling to say the least. You do not have to be a lawyer to know that this video is illegal and if The Daily Times wants to evade the law, they should at least consider the emotional effects this video will have on those involved. If The Daily Times wants to cover something interesting, how about covering the truth? Show the true Stephen Decatur High School: a thriving school in which students of all races, ethnicities, and religions are constantly working together to make a difference in their community.
