To the End of 2016

Good-bye, 2016. As far as years go, I think most people are in agreement that it’s been a long, hard year.

To the last year that I will be fully immersed in my undergraduate career, good-bye. To the last year of Obama’s presidency, good-bye. To the year that Prince died, and so many more beloved celebrities, good-bye.

There are many things that happened this year that will have effects in the next year, and many more to come. And while I’d like to say good-bye to the crisis in Aleppo, the Flint water poisoning, and to many more horrifying things in the world, they are major issues that will continue in 2017. So as terrible as 2016 is for the world, 2017 is our chance to right some of those wrongs.

And with myself, going on into a career or to grad school, I hope I can be on the right side of history. I don’t want to be another generation that turns a blind eye to the world. Scholastica has helped to solidify a lot of those values in me.

With the last few days in the year, I am spending time with friends, family, and my personal statement for graduate school. Hopefully, the year will end on a quiet note. It was a heavy year, and before change can happen, I think I personally need to take a moment to step back and reflect on all that has happened.
