Chris Peterman, "Thank You!!!"

Chris Peterman,

I want to thank you for your courage. I can only imagine what you have gone through over the past few months with being harassed, having your character assassinated, and constant intimidation. It took courage, determination, and strength to stand up for what is right. You're a true man of character.

Thank you for standing up to an institution that requires subordination to their rules with little or no accountability for their own actions. Thank you for not backing down when forced with possible expulsion six months ago.  It would have been much easier to back down, hang your head, and muddle through your last semester causing as few ripples as possible.Thank you for being an example to your fellow students of standing up for and demanding integrity in your school's leadership. I wish more students would have the courage to do what you did but if not at school, I pray that they have the courage to speak with their feet and go somewhere else to school next year.

I wish you all the best. I pray that God opens up great opportunities for you to keep accomplishing much for His Glory. You are an encouragement and a blessing to many of us!

May God's continued blessing be upon your life!!

  1. This man is a man of true honour. Even though he might be retaliated by school officials, nevertheless, he did what is right. He puts the school officials to shame. Imagine a whole legion of these crazies beating up someone who is brave enough to say something on behalf of Tina. Chris, you rock!

  2. I agree so completely with this letter of thanks! Thank you Chris, for your incredible courage! "I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me!"

  3. Amen Tim! What an encouraging letter. I hope it helps others step up, and speak out.
