Letter To President-Daniel G.

Judgement is a big problem, and can lead to people having lots of suicidal thoughts and they will become very sad. This stuff mostly happens when people talk bad about what someone else is wearing and what the person looks like.

“Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest.” ~Sri Chinmoy.

    Judging a person by what they look like doesn't mean that is what they are like, and if you get to know the person more than maybe you would see what they are really like.  9 out of 10 students at school get judged on what they are wearing and how they look like.  The issue is that it is not fair that students get picked on or judged on by their clothes, shoes, and how they look like because it is not their fault they wear that clothes maybe they just cant afford it and it is also not their fault that they look like that.

    My position in this is that it isn't fair that people are judging someone else on something they did wrong because I know that the person judging made that mistake before.  Instead of judging them I think we should be pushing them to their limit, helping them, and being more nice to them.  In my opinion I think that people only judge other people because they know if they tell someone else the person wouldn't like it and they are also only judging because they are just jealous of that person in some way.

    Tyler Clementi (December 19, 1991 – September 22, 2010) was an 18-year-old American student at Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey, who jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge on September 22, 2010. On September 19, 2010, Clementi's roommate, Dharun Ravi, used a webcam on his dorm-room computer and his hall mate Molly Wei's computer to view, without Clementi's knowledge, Clementi kissing another man. Clementi eventually found out, after Ravi posted about the webcam incident on Twitter. Two days later, Ravi urged friends and Twitter followers to watch via his webcam a second tryst between Clementi and his friend, though the viewing never occurred.  Ravi and Wei were federally indicted for their roles in the webcam incidents, though they were not charged with a role in the suicide itself. Ravi was tried and convicted in 2012 on multiple charges related to the webcam viewing. After an appeals court overturned parts of the conviction, Ravi pleaded guilty to one count of attempted invasion of privacy on October 27, 2016.  Clementi's death brought national attention to the issue of cyber bullying and the struggles facing LGBT youth.   The link to this site where i got the information is https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwimysfovo_QAhXqy1QKHbojBMAQFggtMAM&url=https%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FSuicide_of_Tyler_Clementi&usg=AFQjCNFwpk8zF6SrQUJws7rXcM5q7VOEuQ&sig2=HecS2lq7XsNhXVotmsUcmw.  My point by showing you this little piece of this article is that why judge someone so negatively that they suicide just because they were caught kissing another man.  It does not matter if your gay, lesbian, etc.

      I think that the president should create an anti-judging group.  It would also be helpful if the next president creates a law that is against people judging other people.  Last but not least I think that it would probably be helpful if the next president creates a law that bans judging, bullying, etc.
