Northwest High School has experienced negative press the past several days due to a crass video posted by two students over Thanksgiving Break. The fallout from this viral video has led to local and national news coverage and non-credible threats to the school being shared via social media.

However, there is unequivocally more good than bad at Northwest, even during this trying time.

Sophomore Nick Volinksi is one of many students trying to spread love not hate.

“So y’all, let’s start a movement,” Volinksi posted on a video via Snapchat, that is now also going viral. “There’s so much tension and hate being spread these days…so let’s create a movement of positivity and love and show the world and show our peers that not all of NW, not all of the city and not all of the world is filled with hate and racism.”

In his message, he asks students to “take a video of you with someone if [sic] a different race/ethnicity. Tell them you appreciate them and spread equality.”

The hashtag attached to this new movement is #BiggerThanNW.

We at Northwest Horizons encourage students and staff to join in. Let’s spread love, not hate.

    Northwest is not a school of hate. We accept everyone, and for this to happen is sad, but we’re all a family.
