The Truth About Hate

Elena Harcken, Staff Writer

 The Truth About Hate is relatively new at New Milford High School. This April was the second annual Truth About Hate assembly was introduced to Juniors, which focused on the hate pyramid. The hate pyramid dissects the levels of hatred and helps students reflect on past experiences. The students heard stories from their peers that put hate into a new perspective. This activity demonstrated how hatred occurs in many different forms.

  To conclude the assembly, students broke out into groups in the cafeteria where they discussed examples and personal stories of each level on the hate pyramid. The day-long excursion finished with a discussion on how to go forward to better the lives of themselves in the school climate.
