In Honor of Skye Gina Pilato
This was from her senior year in high school. She read this to the whole school at their All School Forum. At the time, people were being rude and mean and she didn’t like it so she wrote this, stood up and read it to the whole school…
We all make mistakes and say things we wish we hadn't at some point in our lives. I have, and I am sincerely sorry if I have hurt anybody.
Delta strives to be a positive community where students learn to be independent and responsible for their actions. Each individual makes up what our community is. Do we want a positive, safe community? or do we want a negative community? I believe we should start anew and be nice to everybody. If you don't have anything nice to say don’t say it at all. And we do not know every ones’ stories, so do not judge them.
Personally, I am getting emotionally stressed by some of the things I am hearing, seeing and experiencing at Delta. For example many of you haven't gotten to know me enough to know my story. In the past couple of days a few of you have said things to me and have treated me in a way that have triggered horrible memories of my past. This is a form of bullying and it is not accepted at Delta or anywhere. And nobody deserves it.
If not already, let's learn to be independent and responsible for our actions. I am here to learn and to also graduate high school :). Delta is one of the coolest schools I've been to, and I've been to a lot. So instead of being negative, we should be positive and work on some conflict resolutions.
Thank you, I appreciate your time."A LOT of PROBLEMS In the world Would DISAPPEAR If we talk TO EACH OTHER Instead of ABOUT EACH OTHER." (anonymous)
