Since joining Scholastic my freshman year, I’ve dreamt of writing my first letter from the editor. I always imagined I’d be doing it with twin senses of excitement — to be starting a new chapter of life at the helm of a publication I love — and nervousness — as I searched for exactly the right words to begin my tenure.

As we write this letter on St. Patrick’s Day, looking out onto our desolate campus, we cannot help but wonder, “Why?” Why is our world being consumed in a global pandemic that seems unstoppable? Why is senior year coming to an end like this? Why were we not prepared? For many of us, it has been difficult to make sense of this chaos and try to find some positives in a time of great darkness.
