Yes, PLEASE speak out, but do so in English.

My sympathies to the grieving ones.

If you students are from Juarez, why don't you rally in Juarez? Why rally here? What better than in your own home town and country where your cries for change SHOULD BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY by your president? Why the RUKUS here? You should STAND UP AND FIGHT IN YOUR COUNTRY as is happening in Egypt. You should be willing to fight and die for your country(Mexico) instead of running, hiding and putting up a fight from a neighboring country. Stop using the US as your shield and fight straight forward and maybe there would be more sympathizers willing to stand with you in you fight.

Yes, Ima is right. The students have a chance to make a difference, but they must go to Juarez. Please rally over there and bring about real change in Mexico.

You make large assumptions that all of these students in an American schoolwho participated are Mexican citizens. You are wrong. The impact of the violence is not only to Mexicans, but American citizens. This was simple call for peace by children. I ask you "is that wrong?" You need to look at the message and the pain it has caused to these children and move beyond the politics. To change the mind, you need to change the heart. I applaud these students.

Wait a minute, there have been a few protests rallying to stop the violence in Juarez, Mexico, but where?.....IN EL PASO!!! Um, if you want to protest/demonstrate, DO IT IN JUAREZ! It's funny how people want violence to stop, but these people are protesting under the comfort and protection of the United States. I understand these are high school children from an El Paso high school, but it's just as lucrative and pointless as rallying for peace in Egypt...from El Paso. Absurd.
