Burlington Middle School Students Write Letters of Comfort for Parkland, Florida Students


Burlington students took pencil to paper to send words of encouragement, support and caring to Florida students who last month were victims of a massive school shooting.

Assistant Superintendent Patrick Larkin made a blog post explaining that middle school students had written the notes to students at Stoneman Douglas High School students. On February 14 a former student killed 17 students and faculty members and injured 16 others.

“In an effort to continue their efforts to participate in small acts of kindness, seventh graders at Marshall Simonds Middle School wrote letters to the students returning to school at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida,” Larkin wrote. “Their sweet messages filled with hope and comfort were thoughtful and inspiring.”

One students wrote:

“What I am trying to say is that I leave you with all my prayers and hope you overcome this traumatic experience. One day when you are old you will think back to this event which made you who are now. You are brave and will overcome this!”

And another said:

“Cannot stop thinking about your. No one should have to go through that. We all love and care about you. God always watches us and protects us at our hardest moments. No matter what He and everyone will help you get through this no matter what happens. Just know you will always have God, friends and family. Thank you for reading this and just being a brave, strong person.”
