Dear Mr. Wyrick: Do you really think the local high school students walked out for peace on Wednesday?

• Not for gun control reform.

• Not for school safety.

• Not for going to school with peace of mind.

• Not because they are scared.

• Not because they are angry seeing how many kids get killed in schools in United States.

• Not because even in Third World countries, students don't get shot in schools.

But if you think is was just for peace, maybe you should have published a picture with a student holding the peace sign instead of the Confederate flag (a questionable sign of peace for some historians).

Just asking.
