Dear black students,

Your life DOES matter.

Dear Muslim students and students of Middle Eastern descent,

We know you are not terrorists.

Dear Mexican students,

You are not rapists or drug dealers.

Dear LGBTQ students,

You are perfect just the way you are.

Dear female students,

You are worthy of respect.

Dear ALL students,

You have dignity. We will get through this day, week, year, and years to come TOGETHER. We will respect and love each other. You are all a beloved part of this school, country, and society.


Students who respect and value you
