Boykin, Skyler Butenshon, Tom Cipullo, Nicholas Cline, Van Gilmer, Aaron Helgeson, Libby Larsen, Will Liverman, Erik Pearson, Matthew Recio, Jen Shyu, Timothy Takach, Augusta Read Thomas, and LJ White—represent the collective grief of a nation and the power of community and healing in a time of great tragedy.
