Dear Amazing Teens,
Thank you for your courage. Thank you for your bravery. Thank you for raising your voices when so many others have stayed silent.
You are a testament to all those who have been killed or injured by guns, in schools, in homes, on streets. You are a shining light to the memories of all the students who won’t graduate, or grow up, and who no longer have a voice. You are that voice for all the people, from your own school and all the schools before yours that have been affected by gun violence.
It’s not easy to step out and be leaders or to change your nation, but know that you have support behind you. And when you need to step back, we will stay at the forefront for you.
Stand strong. Be the change. Make your own courage.
You have our love and admiration. We will be with you every step of the way. And we will fight for a better nation for you and for all.
