What is All-In Student Leadership Day? What is Social Justice? What is acceptance? The students of our district are going through various issues on a daily basis. Many kids come to school with different problems each day, not realizing that other students are also dealing with problems of their own. The students of DAHS are going to have a day where people come in and talk about life decisions, depression, eating disorders, poverty and gun incidents. In today’s world, life as a teenager is getting hard. The sooner we learn that acceptance is the key to ending racial wars, depression that leads to suicide, judgmental minds, and the fear of guns entering the school, the better we will all feel.

Acceptance…this is what we need in our school community. Our school took a survey that shows that we have many problems. The main obstacles our student body faces are eating disorders and depression. Depression is feelings of severe despondency and dejection. When I walk theses halls, I see a lot of different people. The faces are different, the body types are different, the clothes are different, even the personalities are different. I believe this school is full of differences, but we do not learn how to cope with them. This is how depression starts, the actions of someone that is not so nice, points out the differences in someone and belittles them to their lowest point of self-esteem. This also ties into eating disorders. Eating disorders often start with someone saying mean comments about your weight. Depression could trigger eating disorders.

If we, as a student body can begin to accept people’s differences, our school will see positive results and have a healthier school environment where we all feel welcomed.
