Today I spoke at Wilmington High School in Massachusetts, and while I honestly haven’t felt much like speaking anywhere, or like writing, these students gave me heart. While I am not yet ready to blog, here are some of the students I spoke to today.
While I talked about why I became an activist and a writer, they asked many questions. Some of my favorites were: “Was it hard for you to feel the pain of the family of the young man who was murdered by the subject of your book?” and “Can you tell us about the prison riots across the county?”
I’m thankful to Lisa Desberg, English teacher at WHS for inviting me to speak. The young really are our hope.
