The impact could be felt at Eisenhower Middle School in Albuquerque.

"You could tell that it affected them and they're just wanting to let these students know, that they don't understand what they are going through but they sympathize with them," said Randilyn Baca, the teacher overseeing the project.

Students made dozens of postcards with encouraging messages.

"I know that you don't know me. I don't know you, but I care about you and I want to be your friend," sixth grader Kyra Keener wrote inside her card.
