Graduation is something that no one should miss if they have earned the right to do so. However, for two Westfield High School students, this is not the case.
Tom Costello and Ryan Angco decided that they would have a Lightsaber Duel at school during lunchtime. The performance went so well that they received a standing ovation. Apparently Principle Raymond Broderick was not impressed with the duo's skills. He gave them a 10 day suspension, which spans over their graduation.

If you are as disgusted by this situation as I am, a Facebook page has been made to support Tom and Ryan's fight to graduate.

I just don't see what the problem is. Let us know what you think.
