Senator Square: New semester, year at Carson High


The first semester of 2021 at Carson High School is in the past, and a good year and a semester of 2022 have begun. The past is gone and the future is here, so instead of a New Year’s resolution how about taking a look at something much bigger? Two things come to mind, freedom of speech and freedom of action, because anyone with common sense knows that one cannot exist without the other.
So first comes The Talking Locker # 709 at the CHS. In the attached photo, CHS Student Body Secretary Samantha Schofield, Public Relations Officer Sydney Romeo and Treasurer Ginger Cullom discuss the purpose of the locker, which is to give students a place to put their thoughts on how to make the CHS a better school, thus giving them an outlet for freedom of expression. Then, while ideas abound, nothing happens without action, and CHS Leadership hopes to put the ideas of CHS students into action. Regarding action, John F. Kennedy’s inaugural address of January 20, 1961 comes to mind. His historic words, “Don’t ask what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country,” challenged every American to contribute in one way or another to the public good.
Likewise, every CHS student and American can decide to apply the civic action theme of President Kennedy’s inaugural address to their own life and put their good ideas into action. Kennedy inspired students and adults, young and old, to see the importance of civic action and public service when he said, “All of this will not be over in the first hundred days, nor in the first thousand days, not in the life of this Administration, not maybe even in our lifetime on this planet, but let’s get started.
Another inspiring idea from his speech is: “The energy, faith, devotion we bring to this endeavor will light up our country (CHS light) and all who serve it – and the glow of this fire can truly light up. the world. “
The year 2021 is over, it is in the past, and 2022 is here. It’s a whole new year, so, like Kennedy’s inaugural address in 1961, put his words into action and make each day an opportunity to bless others by doing them service, especially those in need.
