I’d like to express my sincere sympathies to you and your families. No young adult should have to witness the atrocity that happened to all of you. When I went to school, it was a safe place to go each day. When I became a teacher, I like many of your teachers, went to work happy and eager to teach our students. We knew we were teaching the future leaders of our nation. This last week, you have proven yourselves to be our future leaders. Your poise and ability to articulate your feelings was incredible. It gave me great faith in what the future of our nation will hold. Please know we will not forget about what you have been thru. We continue to be proud of you and know that you can make a difference. March on and continue on the paths set before you.
Barbara Flynn, Retired Educator
