FACE-TO-FACE GRADUATION CEREMONY FOR SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE STUDENTS
The coronavirus pandemic has caused many high school graduations to be replaced with virtual, drive-in and other alternative ceremonies.Losing the last third of our senior year to a virus was not what we had planned, but it's definitely an experience that will affect our lives forever and a memory that we will never, ever forget. We are made up of our experiences and memories. All of the things that we have been through up to this point make us who we are, and the best part is, we're not done yet. We'll continue to experience things and make memories every day that mold us here and there and to who we truly are and who we are meant to become. The real test came our senior year with the current pandemic. Although society has developed a higher level of understanding, comprehension and acceptance in years prior, self-victimization has become a common occurrence and is a major impediment in achieving our goals. We expect others to find the solutions to our problems and to provide excessive help, since we truly are powerless in stopping the external factors that impact us constantly, whether it'd be natural disasters, terrorism or disease. Thus, the ending point of this campaign is the possible outcome of the new normal graduation ceremony or the traditional ceremony.
