A salute to the Class of 2020:
Your Senior year has been thrown to the crapper and you’re the ones that are left to pick up the pieces. You thought you had months left to make memories, laugh in the school halls and joke about things at the lunch table. But some bat somewhere around the world gave all of that a swift ending by spreading this virus world wide and creating a pandemic (whatever that means).
If you know me, you know that sarcasm is my first language and my main way of coping. So, while I know what a pandemic is (who doesn’t at this point), it’s, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.
THIS IS ABOUT YOU, CLASS OF 2020. This time is supposed to be about making memories, prom, graduation, senior skip day (which is kinda every day, now), senior prank and more. Not some flipping virus that shut it all down.
I’m not going to give you some pep talk about how it still could be or can be. Or how you can still make the best of this.. This sucks, and I AM SORRY!
I’m sorry that you all are having to go through this. Through the not knowing. Through the loss. Through the heartache. Through the social distancing and the rules and the changes. I’m sorry.
In case no one else tells you, Class of 2020, I’m sorry. You deserve to hear that from someone. You deserve better. You deserve more. Be proud that you are graduating in this class. In a class that no one else in your group of peers can say they’ve been a part of. One day, “remember the year that virus closed down the world” will be a common sentence and you are part of that year!
On the bright side, no other senior class will be able to say that they went through what you have or got out of their senior year of classes as early as you did. If there’s a silver lining, look for it, because, Class of 2020, YOU deserve it
