George Clooney Writes Letter to the Parkland Students

George Clooney is voicing his support and approval of the work that the students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school are doing weeks after the tragic shooting that left 17 dead.

In an open letter published on Friday (March 23) on The Guardian, in a special edition guest-edited by students form the school, the actor wrote about how the students inspired him.

Amal and I stand behind you, in support of you, in gratitude to you. You make me proud of my country again,” he wrote.

The two recently announced a $500,000 donation to the student-organized March For Our Lives.

See what he wrote inside…

Dear Emma, Lauren and Rebecca,

Thank you for your note and congratulations on the incredible work you and all of your fellow students are doing to make the country a safer place.

It’s terrific that you’re editing the Guardian. It’s a stellar newspaper and they must feel honored to be working with you.

Amal and I are 100% behind you and will be marching in DC on the 24th, but we both feel very strongly that this is your march. Your moment. Young people are taking it to the adults and that has been your most effective tool. The fact that no adults will speak on the stage in DC is a powerful message to the world that if we can’t do something about gun violence then you will. The issue is going to be this, anyone you ask would feel proud to be interviewed by you but it’s so much more effective if it’s young people.

You could talk to a dozen kids like the young kids from Chicago and LA that Emma met with. You could take over the Guardian and make it tell the stories of children by children. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to point to this moment and say it belongs to you. You certainly should do what you want but that would be my hope for you.

Amal and I stand behind you, in support of you, in gratitude to you.

You make me proud of my country again.

Thank you.

All the best,

George

    That’s right. But Deep State tool Clooney decidedto gatecrash to promote delusional Baria Alamuddin’s disfigured ugly Amal Alamuddin & generate publicity for stealth marketing in UAE gossip media magazines.

    Irony if it all is that George Clooney’s sham publicity arrangement “marriage” to beastly UGLY Amal Alamuddin is a Deep State set up financed by her money laundering arms dealer family like notorious uncle Ziad Takieddine.
    No Clooney twins exist. Nor was equine ugly Amal ever pregnant Wore padding in early months then hid.
