It is fairly obvious Thanksgiving will be different this year than it has been in the past, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rapid change is all many have known for months: staying at home, being isolated from many friends and family, events being cancelled, and school being online. It has truly been hard for everyone. Yet, many people have taken this time of change and ran with it, allowing change not to be a bad thing, but a positive.
2020 has been an especially unique year— to say the least. There have been challenges and triumphs, and people learned how to adapt to big changes. When Oswego High School closed its doors on March 13, 2020, it was surreal to think school would continue without the tile hallways and brick walls that students and staff saw nearly every day.
OHS has many lunch ladies working in the sandwich line, pizza line, salad bar, and at the cash registers. I was able to interview two of these women: Mrs. Debra Martorelli and Mrs. Jackie Harvey.
We can make a difference, big or small, in our everyday lives to limit pollution and improve the condition of the planet.
