We will make the most of it and we will still have some fun!
We are the CLASS OF 2021!!!
To say that the year of 2020 has been unprecedented might be an understatement. It’s (simply put) been insanely off.
Class of 2020 ended in a daze with nearly everything they had been planning quickly ripped away. It wasn’t even a painless rip – it hurt… deep and it will have long lasting sadness. However, I saw seniors rise up and make the best of it. They organized drive-thru graduations, open house parades, Prom dinners, & more. And before it was over – they were set to figure out the fall. We are so proud of you!!!
Here is Class of 2021 – everyone starting at different points in this journey. From face to face, hybrid, online, to not really knowing what tomorrow will bring – these Young Adults are once again showing their resolution to make the best of Senior Year! Tonight is Friday Night Lights Football… the first game of the season. A game that up until a few weeks ago – was not going to be played. The stands will not be filled with students packed in with all their spirit but make no mistake – – – these kids will be cheering on their team from all around. The spirit and love for their school, their friends, their team, & their childhood classmates will be felt like a wave of emotion taking over.
More obstacles remain – this is just the start of Senior Year. As I’ve met and had the pleasure of photographing many… I have all the confidence that they will continue to Rise Up. May we learn from them!!! Don’t spend all your engery focused on what you don’t have or can’t do… make a new path and create new traditions. Enjoy this moment as the time will pass regardless. Peace out to 2020 – Welcome the to the Fun of 2021.
