Fighting for a Unified Nation

Our Team's Best Quotes

“Leadership calls for the representation of the people’s wishes but also the preservation of their welfare. Within the United States, it is incumbent on whoever sits in the oval office to place the needs of the many over the needs of himself. Exemplification of maturity, professionalism, and strict adherence to principle is necessary when faced with a global pandemic. If the President wishes to win reelection, then he must prove he can lead the American people out of an unprecedented virus. If he desires to hold the office for four more years, he has to show how a nation of prosperity can rise from the destruction of the past. For it is the leaders that meet the challenge with the restoration of principle that will be remembered.”

-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


The founders of the Outspoken Oppa are also the founders of the La Cañada Charity. Every year on August 4th, we set up organized charities in Memorial park. We collect donations consisting of food, clothes, and toys. We believe in a world where every child has the opportunity to be lifted from poverty. Our mission is to provide the absolute necessities to the rising generation. We do that, by organizing charities annually across the city. We believe anyone has the capacity to revolutionize technology, pioneer science, and lead the nation. In 2018, we were able to collect 150 donations. In the 2019 charity, we obtained 1,200 donations meaning we had eight times more donations than the proceeding year. Our staff tripled over a year and we were able to reach a larger demographic. Join us in 2020 to help the homeless. Hope to see you then.
