Letter: Change is long overdue

To the Editor:

My wife and I are so very proud of the Ridgefield High School students that participated in the Anti-gun walkout on Friday, April 20, 2018.  

We applaud their courage to stand up and be counted along with the thousands of other students across our nation on the anniversary of the Columbine tragedy.   

They spent their time wisely to effect change, a change that is long overdue. RHS students, thank you, thank you for setting an example of how citizens should come together as a community to encourage those in power to act for the benefit of all.  

Thanks also to the school and town personnel that assisted in assuring that the walkout was such a success.
