The valedictorian about California high schools such at a microphone cut off. By the school's administration during her graduation speech as she started to speak about sexual assault. LaBelle sites who is seventeen years old. Was giving her speech at Petaluma high school when she was abruptly cut off around four minutes and were speech at first. She talked about our fellow classmates should feel proud for overcoming obstacles and graduating in pursuing their dreams and you know deal. So degenerate art should be about Victoria is a daughter of parents who left high school when she spoke about class experts. When sites started to address the issue of sexual assault specifically. As she was about to say that some high school had silence victims. Her microphone was mysteriously come off. Quoting here from sites when makeup Mike is a poll. Her microphone was shut off when she was about to bring up sexual violence. According to video posted online quoting here. This is what she was saying when she was cut off final stop where she was scuttled. Because the class of 2008 team has demonstrated time and time again that we may be a new generation. But we are not too young to speak up to dream and to create change. Which is why even when some people on this campus though some people. Those some people what. We don't know too fast. Her microphone was cut off her classmates started chanting let her speak let her speak. The school did not. Refusing to be silenced. Sites later recorded the full speech and uploaded on YouTube. Met him in that room. Where she said and I quote an even lean learning on a campus which some people defend perpetrators. Of sexual assault and silence are victims we did not let that drag us down. I'm as surprised on this one. I'm torn. I'm torn because what she had to say was important. However. Schools. Have the right I do believe with a wide audience out there and family members that now there in the audience waiting for their. One shining moment with their senior. Schools have an obligation to make sure before the valedictorian goes out and speaks that that speech is appropriate. And so this is nothing in them they say submit your speech we'll take a look. Don't divert from the speech you don't want to get into a situation. Where. A speaker which isn't always the valedictorian by the way but sometimes is where the speaker goes up and says. It's been a great year it's. Been a wonderful journey and by the way while I'm up here I just wanna say. That the principle is a rapists. You know I mean EE he. Ye this schools are kind of putting their necks out giving TV. Speakers an open microphone. In front of any enormous audience. And the school does have and interest in making sure. That's what those people say isn't you know slanderous or or factually incorrect or. You know makes fun of another student all of those things. It's so. We've and I'm just spit on here have passed the point where the valedictorian speech is now useless. Even because let me let me expand images will be further from. Because the way the valedictorian speech works the way I understand nowadays. Is one of two ways. It's either controversial. And become sort of a distraction. Where the school is cringing the parents are like. She. Cares. Or it's the typical. We did it. We're gonna set the world on fire even though you're not and islands while there's a really good ones god everyone everyone wants a wild nine times out of ten checked that 99 times out of a hundred. It's your typical we did. We're gray we're gonna take on the world always going to be a rocket ideal yet. We're going to be again or ever will never leave each other's side although you never talk to me again in five years we'll keep in touch you want. Some you'll be fatten the ten year reunion. So. Burden on the checks went to school was in the rights if she wanted to talk about sexual harassment she should have submitted that speech with that line included. For approval. Let's be honest. She left that line out of the approved speech. She had she given that speed it was true then it wouldn't want to outline and they would have said no. I get back to my point why do we do about Victorian speech they eat it she is seventeen. Who is trying to be controversial. Even though they don't. And not to go back to the vacation but it will in this regard. There was a time. Where the kids when we are on vacation last week in Turks. They wanted to do this they wanted and that was that time I remember telling Sarah Mya and Kelly's son. Sit back and look to enjoy it look at what your C. But seventeen year old minds like Sarah's. Wanna go Paris say they want to you know. Lay out in hand they wanna run in the ocean they can't look at the beach and go god it's. They're not that agent are not mature enough. So what makes us think that a seventeen. Is going to give a speech that's just going to set the world on fire. It's going to be a hole like speech. While that's wise. It's not a soccer speech Tuesday Barnard graduates what you're seventeen year old kid with no life experience. For the most part nine. Sparked everything you've done in life has been paid more. You have nothing with all due respect you seventeen year olds listening. You have nothing to offer when it comes to wisdom because you have done. Now for the most part. So why do we even allow these valedictorian speeches you're either trying to be controversial. Given the same milk toast speech we've heard. And times get all the stage. Now jerks got. This got I know. Back. Get off the stage you don't know crap. Your seventeen years old you live nothing. Go get a mortgage and Pittman come back and give the speech. So criticism relate to south we had eleven speeches it was extra kick that's ridiculous. Misses free speech punish after the fact censored before it. Well what if they want to say what's your punishment and when that time we cut the English teacher banging the science teacher in the back room of the shop. You know you cannot fall into Lansing to cannot say let didn't say anything. You can. But I think here's the problem the school has with her sentence about sexual assault. If there was no conviction if that was rumor I'm not saying it didn't happen probably did it. You're getting into some territory. Where her loss YouTube might have some legal issues let me ask you this what do what if the valedictorian gets up and says. And yield. Missy mix not face and rose three group you have bullied me for years. I am I am talking to you. Standup. What do you have to say about your behavior because you wrecked my year's seventh grade through ninth grade it. Huge adjustment and then. At a graduation you just got done going to a graduation. And knowing Jack am assuming you did not give the valedictorian she did not. What do you remember from the speech. You know. There are a couple of moments limit or reliever let me river I. Girls saying somewhere over the rainbow it was really good as part of an auditory and speak no I do remember axes that either gonna let me ask you another question and a other than the parents of the valedictorian. Iran who cares about that speech you're right you're right it's a waste of time him. We need to get rid of the valedictorian speech because nobody cares I in my 47 year old man sitting in the audience. What are my spouse do get drops of wisdom quarrels plan from a seventeen year old kid who's never paid a bill in her life now. Give me a break get off the stage Lucy. Now I'm back. To come back. I say this just because they are young. To me that does not mean they cannot deliver something powerful person in Parkland high school okay that's not a good fit well. I'm just say you're one who always says it's seventeen years old they don't know anything. You would styles while I think department concern okay category there Parkland kids are totally. And then but. Blue valley solve for Easter western north or shot a measure of liberty whatever. You don't know crap get off the stage at the kit. Is not say that the now it's my kids and give the speech here's what. Interesting so they censor her lion. And then the speech went viral because they censored it's so. More people across the country have heard this and read his speech then anyone sitting in that audience would have heard it around it. Because they made it this thing when they said he can't talk about sex assault. By 76779. It. You know I have always said finding the right person Dyer and retaining. The right person that you have hired. Are difficult things I want my best friends owns her own business and she's always sang is so much harder than you think to find people and then when you find them retain them.

And go back and say hey I have been out of school for twelve months and that's what I've gone through and then of course that would have happened. Subsequent years that the the valedictorian and get their speech. To the graduating class next year. Just an idea. And some interesting thought what about the girl who gets pregnant at age. Sixteen letter gives it keeps that baby at age seventeen comes back in tennis is such a great record of disparage. While as the kids that dropped out after eighth grade. Come back at the end twelfth grade and tell people they missed the yeah. Who would give it kind of speech I don't know jobs as outrage and now now.
