"There exists a national revolution happening in this country to protect our youth & students. Yet, despite valiant efforts over the years, progress has only truly occurred, not behind closed door sessions with lawmakers, but rather, due to the selfless acts of everyday individuals - citizens & professionals - celebrities & construction workers; the fabric of what makes America great & still a hopeful place for our students to learn & grow... While we work to end violence, we recognize we do not work alone..."
