What happened to the days of the good old constitution? Where someone had the freedom to say what they want, when they want? Well, To the teacher who told me I wasn't allowed to use the word "Fruit" in school. I say, you should go back to school, and learn that I have the right to say what I want. I was not calling anyone a "fruit" I said it as I walked past your class, and you assumed I was.

And I'm sorry if I offended anyone, whether on that day, or right now, if I did, you can come up to me and say "Hey, I found that offensive" and I will apologize.

I'd seriously like to see you yell at me in the middle of the hall about this, because I'll laugh right in your face. I'm all for people feeling "safe" at school, but the word fruit should not be taken offensively, unless used that way. So, to Cole Harbour District High School, I say to you . . "FRUIT FRUIT FRUIT FRUIT FRUIT"

The sad thing is you'd probably try and have me suspended for this right here if you found out I wrote it. So, I'm going to e-mail it to the school.

Have a nice day

CDHS student.
