Dear class of 2020, in this time of uncertainty, life after graduation, I thought I could just push through. You know, like I had always done. I thought, if I would put all my time and energy into working, finding a job, keeping myself busy, I would get over this hurdle. This moment would become a thing of the past. Little did I know, nothing that I did or was instructed to do could get me out of this hump.
“I tried everything,” I cried. But still no luck. “I’ve done everything that society told me to do. I’ve lived a dream of going to college and graduating, first in my entire family– however, it looks like I’m the only one suffering. I’m the only one with this pain, like a sword daggered through my heart.
