Letter from the Editors:
As we are led through the end of this terrible milestone, 2020, we walk with hope for peace, and a better year for all. 2020 brought in a new decade of hope and promise, but quickly turned negative with the onset of the pandemic. Jobs, careers, education, we're all lost, and worst of all, innocent lives tallied up to an unthinkable and unnecessary death toll. The pandemic has brought tragedy among all people. In addition, social injustice reached a breaking point. Streets have been full of rioters, protests by Black Lives Matter against police brutality, clashes with white supremacists.
As we suppress all obstacles, we continue to walk with our heads high, our expectations higher, and our aspirations towering. As young adults, we have many responsibilities of our own and the expectations of our family members. So with this, we are guided into a new year. A new semester, which means a new opportunity for students to achieve set goals, including grades, personal goals, and home life. We as Olympians must show our full potential even with the struggles that we encounter.
Editors here at The Torch and I leave you with this, always have hope to strive for more, never let someone tell you, “ you can't when you know you can,” and try to be the best version of yourself you can possibly be this upcoming year. This year has been a tough journey, but besides the downfalls of this year, we welcome you all to the Fall/ Winter Torch 2020. We will keep students and parents updated with information and tips for the upcoming year.
