Support for student’s cause

To the Editor:

High praises to Emma Falk, the young adult student from Crystal Lake Central High School whose letter was published March 2.

Kudos also to her parents for having raised such an intelligent, wise, courageous and spirited leader. I hope Emma will go far in her quest to promote equality for the teenage LGBTQAI citizens and will succeed in minimizing homophobia in this community.

It’s a shame she and others have to attend school in such a conservative area, and it’s not the Gay Straight Alliance Club that’s being political, but the school administration in denying her group the right to advertise and raise funds like other social clubs do. I believe this could be an issue for the courts.

I support Emma’s mission and would be glad to help her group financially or otherwise. I also encourage others to make a difference, step out of the darkness and lend a hand.
