Give the Eastchester Class of 2020 the Graduation We Deserve
This year the world was faced with a pandemic that no one was prepared for. While this is a situation that should not be taken lightly, as people have lost their lives and have been hospitalized, it is important to take into consideration how much the senior class has lost. None of us ever expected to leave school one day and then be told we wouldn’t return. For years, seniors have been guaranteed various activities, the biggest one, of course, high school graduation. The best months of our lives have been taken away from us, as we have already missed out on prom, college t-shirt day, senior skip days, spring sports, and our WISE internships. Being told we will graduate on a computer is unacceptable. All of us have worked tirelessly not just for the last four years, but for the last thirteen years. The seniors never had a chance to say goodbye to friends and teachers, and graduation is the last time we will be able to do this and be together. Without it, there will be no closure for the seniors who have developed bonds with their classmates over the last few years. The Class of 2020 deserves closure, we deserve to stand together and switch our tassels to the other side, we deserve to stand together and throw our caps up in the air and be proud of ourselves for all the hard work we have done. Even if our graduation date needs to be postponed, we deserve to walk together with all the proper safety precautions.
