A Sandy Hook Parent’s Letter to Teachers

Judges’ Comments

“Oh my. Not sure how I can’t choose this one. Very moving, inspiring. Harder to find a more persuasive advocate than a parent of a victim in a school shooting.”

“It is hard to read Nelba Marquez-Greene’s letter to teachers – especially with that sweet picture of her adorable daughter – and not tear up. She is demonstrating tremendous courage. Blessings be upon her.”
