Fenway or Wrigley?
Happy Friday Everyone,
I have been in a constant battle with my friends John (’15), Delaney (’14), and Nick (’16) about which Major League Baseball stadium is better, Fenway Park or Wrigley Field. Clearly, Fenway is much better! It shouldn’t even be a question of debate! Fenway is America’s most beloved ballpark! The only valid argument that was presented to me was that Wrigley hasn’t been renovated and Fenway has. Just this week there was a contract signed for a $500 million renovation of Wrigley, so very quickly, that argument will be moot.
I would like all of you to voice your opinion! This is a debate that needs to be settled.
Otherwise, it has been a busy week here at Gould. We were all struck deeply by the tragedy at the Boston Marathon. Gould Reachout is putting on a fundraiser today for the family of the little boy who died. The students get to dress down for a small fee. All proceeds will go to the family. Also, the news of the fertilizer plant explosion just adds to the sadness of the week.
Just this morning, we are hearing about the “warzone” in Watertown, Massachusetts. I have been texting my cousin, who lives in Belmont, Massachusetts. A few of her friends live close enough to Watertown that they could hear the gunfire and the explosions from the bombs. This situation seems surreal. How could this be happening?
Clearly, we all need to take a moment and think about the past week. Please remember not to take life for granted. Try to make the most out of everything. Mr. Ormiston had a great “moment” at formal dinner the other week. He asked us to think of three words of how you choose to live your life. Take a moment and think about that “moment.”
Until Next Week,
