Hey folks,

Sad days here in Bellingham/Ferndale. I lost two of my students and two others are in the hospital in critical condition–a senseless accident. Please, hug your kids, your friends, your parents.┬áTell them you love them.

I’m doing okay. Being able to share my grief with all my communities has helped and the outreach has been amazing. If you want to help out some people who need it, here are┬ásome links to ways to help.

If you’re local, feel free to come to the candlelight vigil on the Ferndale Riverwalk tonight at 9pm.

Windward High School will be open all next week for students to come hang out, play basketball/frisbee or even finish up coursework if they need to.



If you need something to trigger some catharsis, you might listen to our graduation song here. rehearsed in one day, Calling Our Children Home.
