Letter to the editor

To the girl in the headlines:

Know that we hurt for you.

Know that we will fight for you.

Know that we love you.

This will define you, but this doesn't have to be the end of you.

You are worthy, secure, intelligent, kind, compassionate and loved.

You are not just the girl who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

You are not what you were wearing, or what he was carrying.

You are a part of Duke, and because of that you have ten thousand people in your corner.

We promise to be there, no matter what.

We will stand by you, and we will fight for justice.
