I was absolutely blown away by the Kids Issues [Xpress, March 16 and 23]!

Thank you so much for printing those wonderful stories, essays, thoughts — and the artwork that shows so much talent. The young people showed depth, inspiration and creativity.

Thanks go out to the teachers who motivated their students and to the parents who are nurturing their children.

I read every part of both issues and was impressed and uplifted. A thank-you to the students who shared themselves with so much thought and introspection. Kudos to all!

P.S. Please print a comprehensive Voters’ Guide prior to early voting if possible. Thanks again.
