YEAR RIFE WITH OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS TO SPEMC OUT ON ISSUES STORY BY REENAN SINGLETON One thing's for certain. Add youth, a sudden leap of knowledge and a cause worth supporting/decrying and you're likely to encounter a student with an axe to grind. There weren't mass sit-ins, walk-outs or environmental sabotage, but UH students nonetheless refused to stay silent on a wide range of issues, from as big as America's war with Iraq and terrorism, to abortion and anti- abortion supporters' rights to display graphic photos, to as seemingly trite as how good they thought the football team would be this year. The jump from high school to college sometimes gives students the perfect chance to explore not only their future paths, but where they stand on issues. Never have they been given as much freedom as they have at a university, whether it be as a campus resident or as a commuter student getting turned on by an opinionated professor. But sometimes, teachers just light the spark that sets students' minds ablaze and lets them set their own boundaries. Whatever the case, whether it was a professor who encouraged them to think for themselves, or seeing other students filled with passion, or suddenly realizing they had the opportunity to make reasoned statements, students exercised their freedom of speech. And it was a good time to do that. The Pro-Life Cougars brought their abortion display back to campus after winning a legal battle with the University. Coming across large graphic photos of aborted fetuses on the way to lunch may have turned some stomachs, but it also got students talking. As big a campus issue as that was, nothing could compare with America's war with Iraq. When organizers staged an anti-war rally at Butler Plaza, they were greeted by U.S. supporters. But it proved that free speech works — for everybody.
