Recently, I saw several postings on Facebook about an assembly held at Brainerd High School. The assembly focused on mental health issues. The purpose was to provide education and advocacy on mental health issues. There were speakers and performances, all of which were very powerful and meaningful. Congratulations to Olivia and everyone else that helped put on this very important event. As a former teacher and legislator, it did my heart good to hear that this all came from the students themselves. I also applaud the audience who were very respectful and connected. It is wonderful to see young people so engaged in important issues like mental health, gun control, school referendums and much more. Your passion, knowledge, compassion and involvement are exemplary and brings great hope to so many of us. You not only talk the talk, but you also walk the walk. Thank you.
