Letter from Kip Wilson

Dear students,

You are
an inspiration,
you are
our hope,
you are
the future.

I’m so sorry
your lives
have been forever changed
by that gun, those bullets,
so sorry
you must try
to survive in this
culture of terror and fear,
so sorry
no one insisted
this
cannot
continue.

Until now.

Thank you
for your
bravery, your
eloquence, your
determination
in refusing
to stand by and watch
this happen.

No more.
Never again.

Kip Wilson, Author
