What a wonderful opportunity for our local youth to express themselves- a very powerful and effective way to promote good mental health amongst our young people as they deal with the pressures of growing up in Palo Alto. Congratulations to Carolyn, Deanna, Jade and others who are collaborating on such a worthwhile venture.

Yet we continue to cut funding to the arts. You have to love how America doesn't value happiness and creativity/culture and only the hard sciences. Look how well that worked out during my career at Gunn. (Graduated 2009)

This exhibit shows how important our elective programs are at the high schools. Let's hope they remain intact through the graduation requirement decision process and the budget situation. We hope those who get the most out of these programs come forward to advocate.

I was amazed at the depth of feelings portrayed by the students. The works are very captivating and thoughtful. Kudos to everyone for bringing out the best in the students. To me this is what Palo Alto is truly about!

As a parent that has lost a son, thank you Jade and the community for doing this. It shows the love that you have for our youth and to make sure that other families do not suffer as we are suffering. Hope to be at Philz tomorrow afternoon.
