Danielle Cureton: Student Protester

Yesterday when I wore the Sean Bell shirt I felt amazing. People were really quiet when I got on the train. In the morning, people were just reading it. The point of wearing it was for people to see how kids can make a difference. The difference I was trying to make was using my voice by protesting the verdict given during the case against the cops. It was important because I was an upstander and used my voice for good!

The fact that people were so quiet when you got on the train shows the power of importance of what your class is doing. Clearly, the shirt forced people to think about the situation, and perhaps made them a little uncomfortable, which is a good thing.

Wow, Danielle, that was amazing to protest in a way where everyone can see on the train. I am sure it made people think about what happened and they saw a young person taking a stand. Very Cool.
