Capturing 2020: A Time Capsule of Our Community
Lawrentians spent the last week of Spring 2020 reflecting upon their experiences during such a tumultuous time. Here is a selection of works from The Lawrenceville Community Project: Bearing Witness to 2020.
Lauren Kim '22
I'm not black, so I'll never understand
How to live day by day --
Loving. Fearing. Trusting. Running.
Only to die at the law's pale hand.
But I'm sixteen and I know
What it's like to be lied to.
Stars fall from the sky, I call out the name.
No ocean or rain can drown out the fire,
A city in pieces. Engulfed in our flame,
Falling into eternity, now who's a liar?
Arriving at the world's end,
Our waves soon leave the sand.
The green light flashes back to red.
And I'll never understand.
