In light of recent issues in the world, I would like to give my condolences on behalf of everyone at Notebooks For Notebook. We understand that what is going on is something that leaves everyone horrified and confused, but let this not be the time where we turn our backs to one another. Let this be the time where we make time to not only love our neighbors but appreciate them and not for what they have done but for who they are. As we continue to watch the evil of the world evoke terror into our homes, I hope that everyone takes this opportunity to educate not only themselves but their peers, reflect with their peers and then react with their peers, hand in hand. Let us not skip this process because reaction without reflection is retaliation and violence never solves the issue. This is an issue for you and me to solve, not as people of a certain race but as people in general. Although there are many issues in the world right now, it is time for us as a people to speak up and focus on an issue that has been present for centuries, which is unequal representation and treatment of minorities in every facet of our society. So we at Notebook vow to continue to educate youth on these issues and allow them to work together to come up with solutions that will not only change the way they think about one another, but also the way they treat one another. We will not, cannot and are not stopping until this issue is eradicated once and for all. Thank you so much.
