Three year old Hunter is deaf. He uses S.E.E. (Signing Exact English) sign language to communicate. His name is a symbol unique to him, just as our names are unique to us. It is a registered sign, not one that is made up by his family or anyone else.
Hunter signs his name by crossing his forefinger and index finger and moving his hand up and down.
But his school district thinks the sign is a symbol for violence. They say the gesture violates their rule banning anything that resembles a weapon. And they have asked him to change the sign for his name. Which is in essence, changing his name.
