Shadow Hills and Palm Desert high schools both lit up their athletic facilities on Friday night as a way to show their support for the Class of 2020. The lights were on for 20 minutes.
In turn, this was also was done for our local senior student-athletes who lost their final season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This act of lighting the stadiums is symbolic, certainly. We are all called to be a light in the darkness.
These are unprecedented times but there is light at the end. And often times, that light comes from within.
