“You inspired me to start writing songs and I play flute, too. Your class (SAFE through the Arts) shows me that when I get married or have a relationship with a guy not to let him control my life. I keep listening to  “Bricks of a Wall”. I love it so much! You are a really great singer and flute player!!!!!  I listen to all your songs and they are all really great. You’ve really inspired me to doing things I’ve never dreamed of doing before. Thank you for inspiring me to write songs and becoming the person I wished to become. I really do thank you. If it weren’t for you, I would still be fighting with my family instead of getting along. You’ve really helped me change to be a nicer person to my siblings and to my parents. I wish one day I get to come see one of your concerts again and I hope one day I get to be like you- getting up the on the stage and singing your heart out and helping people out with violence and stopping it. Thank you for changing the person I used to be.”

-Katie Short-student at Margaretville Central school, NY and past participant of the SAFE through the Arts program
