Being an ally is a good thing, but only when it is done with the right intentions. Wearing the term "ally" on your sleeve does not inherently give you the right to call attention to your own support instead of the actual issues at hand.
The partisan practice of manipulating district lines is an undemocratic crack in the foundation of America since the nation was first formed. From the rotten boroughs in England, to Patrick Henry attempting to gerrymander James Madison out of Virginia, to the cracking and packing of 2010, redistricting is one of the oldest continued abuses of power in our democratic experiment.
Finals week is as much of a legend on college campuses as it is a reality. For some, it can make or break their grades for the semester. It is not rare for a class’s only grades to be the midterm and the final, which puts a tremendous amount of pressure on students to perform well on their exams.

The state and the U.S. are dealing with a public health crisis, and we laurel RBHS for taking a role in addressing the epidemic.
In Emily Esfahani Smith's Ted Talk titled "There is more to life than being happy," she discusses that in her research, she has discovered four things that actually make people fulfilled. Combining her studies in psychology, neuroscience and philosophy, she stated the four pillars of fulfillment as follows: a sense of belonging, finding purposes (not the same thing as finding a job that makes you happy), stepping beyond yourself and storytelling.
