Fighting for a Unified Nation

Our Team's Best Quotes

The true strength of a community comes from its member’s dedication and inclination. Through shared beliefs and principles, they symbiotically coexist. Whether those beliefs are derived from religion or self-established laws, they stand together. They do not exercise unnecessary force upon the common man because they believe in voluntary transactions and consent. Their will is forged from the desire to help the poor and aid the sick. They act at the behest of the needy by exemplifying selflessness. For there is no greater equivalence for strength then sacrifice.”

-Ethan Kim, Executive Editor

A strict adherence, however, can be dismissive of the most important virtues in government, which are adaptability and balance. To be able to reform oneself, allows that entity to survive in an ever-changing environment where all things have a beginning and an end, a reason to exist, and are different from one another. This trinity of complexity and differences allows us to recognize the substantial qualms that benefit our ever more complex society. A balance can ensure equal understanding among the political groups which dominates the landscape.

“After the Fukushima Nuclear accident in 2011, radiation spread around the area of the reactor and has still yet to be cleaned up as of December of 2019. Working around radioactive waste such as that found around the nuclear reactor will inevitably cause cancer. When some older people in Japan heard about this, they volunteered to clean the waste up because their dream was to hand down a world that was just a little bit cleaner to the next generation. The dream of those small groups of people perfectly exemplifies a dream worth having.”

“Whether you’re sad, a mess, or hit rock bottom- keep moving forward and keep smiling. Remember that the light can reach even the bottom of a dark ocean, and you will find that your smile will guide you towards the light once more.”

-Edwin Tieu, Managing Editor

“When it comes to parenting, it is important to not narrow their horizons into one career or company. Let the child attempt and occasionally fail in search of the future. However, you are breaking the number one rule if you let your child sit and wait for opportunity to come: it requires exploring.”

-Blake Rivera, Philosophy Columnist
