Hope on the horizon
It is safe to say that nearly everyone is glad to see 2021 in the rearview mirror. But as anyone who drives can attest, when glancing in the rearview, we often get a peek at ourselves while moving forward. The journalism team at St. Francis High School recently took the time to look at what is in the past and what we hope is to come now that there is hope for an end to the pandemic on the horizon. These are their stories.

2020 was a year that no one could’ve predicted besides maybe the Simpsons. (They did predict the murder hornets and coronavirus). It was like a rollercoaster ride that was never ending. It whipped people back and forth and in a way that wasn’t fun at all. Even the people who love rides would have to agree, this one was terrible.
There are many things that I am looking forward to once COVID-19 isn’t a big deal anymore. I can’t wait for all of the stores and restaurants to open up to full capacity again. I can’t wait to be able to dine-in wherever I want again instead of just taking the food to go.
I can’t wait to be able to go shopping without the last second worry that I forgot to bring a mask with me — that happens to me quite often. I’ll be backing out of my driveway and have that moment of doubt that I left my mask behind. Then I have to park my car and double check that I actually grabbed one and go get one from the house if I forgot it. The mask isn’t like a pack of gum where I can just leave without it and grab it some other time.
