Letter from Stephanie Olivieri

Dear Parkland Students,
I hardly know what to say to you because you are stronger than I will ever be. You are braver than I ever have been. I am so deeply sad about what happened at your school, but I am in awe of your resilience, strength, and courage.
I believe in you. You are our future so for that I say thank you for standing up for what is right.

In the 4th Harry Potter book, Dumbledore says to Harry, ~~~~~ “Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right.” ~~~~ I always loved this quote. J.K. Rowling nailed it.

Thank you so much for everything you are doing. Please also remember that it’s okay if you have moments of anger and sadness and take care of yourselves. We need you.

With much admiration,
Stephanie,
