I think I speak for MANY when I thank our teenagers for speaking up and working to ensure the safety of students all over the country. It is wonderful to know how dedicated our young people are to this vital cause. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I saw students with signs walking down Middlefield in RWC this morning. I hinked my horn and waved in support. I am so proud of these young people standing up where adults refuse to go.
