Maybe the reason watching the filmed version of “Hamilton” brought to mind so many memories of James Luke was because he, too, is now part of history. And I guess I’m just here, listening to the songs that remind me of my brother and writing down old memories of us as if telling them again could change how they ended.
Grief does not end in a day. Sometimes it doesn’t ever go away. I know it will surface again sometime in late August, and October during Halloween, and November in the weeks leading up to and during Thanksgiving. What will I be thankful for then?
Ever since Princeton’s temporary closure in March, each and every student has felt the gaping absence of their campus, but some of that still stands to be recovered. While remaining on campus was impossible, an alternative was unveiled on May 30 via the creation of a virtual campus on Roblox.
Conceptualizing race and racism inherently creates a set of paradoxes.

As we search for ways to keep ourselves entertained while sequestered within our homes, we have become increasingly dependent on art. However, not everyone can easily engage with the arts, as participation demands a high premium, particularly for the performing arts, such as classical music and ballet. For Trenton Youth Orchestra students, Princeton’s closure means a loss of both music and a vibrant community.

In light of being prematurely sent home due to the coronavirus, never have I seen such complex, crafty, and community-minded memes be published at this quick of a pace.
