Letter from Andrew Durkin

Dear Students:

The backlash is forming, but I hope you know it is nothing. It will fight you with all its weapons–its vast audience, its impossible piles of money, its single-minded instinct for self-preservation–but it is nothing. NRA, GOP, FOX–a triumvirate alphabet soup of hate and ignorance and Moloch-worship. But it is nothing, and you will win.

You will win, because you have already figured out the solution, despite adults who either haven’t correctly understood the problem, or don’t care. The rest of us have your backs–but that means you’re out in front now. As a parent, I wish it didn’t have to be that way. As an American, I feel more pride tonight than I have in a long, long time.

Never forget: your youth is your wisdom and your wisdom is your power.

My deepest gratitude and respect,
Andrew Durkin, Author/Composer
