Diamond (It Doesn't Matter)

In response to one of our seniors' reflections on “People and Color”, 18-year-old Diamond writes, simply and boldly, “It doesn’t matter.” What power in 3 small words.

It Doesn’t Matter
In response to “People and Color” by Robert Mitchell, Senior

I don’t think that it should matter what color you are.
I think that, at the end of the day, we are all human.
My body is no different than the next person’s.

Diamond is in 11th grade at St. Mary’s Villa, and an Achieving Independence Center youth member. Her coach is Nicole Sonsini. Click Here to re-read the story that inspired Diamond to write her response.
