TO THE STUDENTS

Of pretoria High School (who were told by their school they have to straighten their hair because it looks "messy")
  1. You are strong
    This beautiful picture says it all. I'm amazed by the strength of these young kids. I'm sickened by anyone trying to tell them they are less than.
  2. You are perfect
    I can't imagine what your life has been. What battles you have fought. What pain you have endured. But there is nothing that you should change about the way you were born because you are an inspiration.
  3. You are and inspiration
    By fighting for your voice, by demanding that you be treated with respect. Today, I will be talking to my students about you. Today, I will be following your story and find out what I can do to show you my support. You give me hope for your generation.
