You Deserved So Much More.

You deserved so much more

Then a death fueled by hate

and confusion.


You deserved so much more

from a life that seems so "stuck"

when you are 17.


You deserved so much more;

More moments of joy and relief,

Not terror and pain.


There's no amount of love or regret that will give you what you deserved to live out. The highs and lows of a life that means so much, but seems so far behind the walls of a high school. You are somebody's pride and joy. You are somebody's miracle. You are somebody's baby. You are all of our pain, and we carry you from this day forward. We will not forget your story or why we must do better. You deserved so much more.
