KidLitforKidsLives - a movement of letters from children's book creators to the students of "Parkland & Beyond"

There are over 35 letters so far at the KidLitforKidsLives website, and it's a rising up of support and encouragement from our community for the students fighting for gun control in the United States. As a sampling, here are two of the letters:

Letter from Supriya Kelkar
Letter from Nancy Castaldo

Most importantly, you can share your own letter with the students as well - link at the bottom of the kidlitforkidslives site.

Illustrate and Write On,

Thank you so much for sharing the website, Lee! I know from experience that when someone steps up to speak out on this issue, there are people who will try to get them to step down by bullying them and trying to convince them that they don’t know what they’re talking about. We want these teens to remember that we support them, that they DO know what they’re talking about, and that they are doing the right thing.

And thank you to all the authors who have submitted letters. We already have over 50!
Your voices make such a difference!
