Dear Future Rocky Students

As you may look back on this year, try putting yourself in our shoes for a bit. During this time, we lost family and friends, we missed out on what was supposed to be the best part of our lives, and we made history. 

My biggest fear is to lose someone I love. During this time, many people have lost a lot of people that are close to them and a lot of people they love. Respect your elders and always tell the ones close to you that you love them every chance you get because you never know when your last day with them will be. 

The ultimate goal in going to school is to graduate, the class of 2020 has worked hard and tirelessly for 12 years going to school even when we didn’t want to, going to school while playing sports, going to school without having our homework done, we did it all, just so we could walk across that stage and cheer for our friends while our families cheered for us. Having that moment stripped from us is indescribable and unexplainable. 

With everything that is the new normal in our lives right now, restaurants and businesses closed, mask wearing in public, limits in grocery stores, and without reason to go out staying home, is all a part of us making history. There have been a lot of changes to our lives that I wish nobody ever has to experience again.

To the future Journalism students who may look back on this someday, from the bottom of my heart, make every day at the Rock the best day there. Although that may seem impossible, it’s possible. Four years is nowhere near enough time.
