    Hell, you're the only one being ashamed, Guy. That might signify the need for a gut check. In fact, I'm trying to think why "hell" is such a horrible world.

    Yes I have always though of the words "legal standing" as very emotional.

    I don't see any cause for shame on my end. Defending the inappropriate actions of this child is what is shameful. Sad, really, that anyone could be so morally stunted as to think that her behavior is worthy of defending.

    She did absolutely nothing wrong, she didn't break any rules, any laws, or infringe upon anyone's rights.

    I think it is truly sad that anyone cannot see what this child did wrong. It's like a moral blindness, or perhaps a failure to recognize basic human morality at all. This thread is a tragic commentary on society.

    We are first and foremost a country of rules and laws.
    The fundamental concept is that any action not explicitly denied, is allowed!
    Unless the school had a specific rule about not using the word "hell", she broke no rules.
    Her being right has almost no bearing, on the harm she can cause herself by not apologizing.

    She shouldn't have to apologize for a rule she didn't break. I respect her for not apologizing.

    I don't think it's a big deal for her to just apologize. She should pick her battles more wisely. Really, what is she battling about? Is it such a big deal to apologize for swearing and worth all of this? For what purpose? She herself admitted that she made a "mistake" so why not just say I'm sorry that I cursed in front of everyone. It's really, really kind of stupid when you think about it, and relatively unimportant.

    Glad to see that some people still possess common sense.

    I agree, but if her not apologizing, cost her a big scholarship, how is that better for her?
