POW WOW | American Indians from across the United State and Canada participate in the 21st Annual ASU Spring Contest Pow Wow Saturday and Sunday. Dancers wore their traditional regalia while dancing to native drumming and singing.

Opinions: Letters to the Editor

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: My friends and I attended the candlelight vigil on Hayden Lawn Thursday night. We went to pay our respects and show our support as fellow students and fellow human beings.

However, our moments of peace and silent reflection were constantly interrupted by those around us who were not there for the same reasons we were.

These people were there to film and take pictures and turn a somber event into a publicity stunt. Cameras rushed the podium to get the first shot of the first candle being lit. Shutters clicked incessantly after each victim's name was read out loud.

Opinions: Illegal immigration a global problem, and there is no easy answer

PATE: Illegal immigrants aren't a uniquely American problem. China struggles with its own particular situation, and perhaps their mishandling of it can show us how not to go wrong.

I was there to teach English to the instructors and teach the food pyramid and nutrition to the kiddos.

Opinions: A threat in every corner
