Crimson Feather Spring/Summer issue
It is my honor to present to you The Crimson Feather Spring/Summer edition: a literary and art magazine composed of the written and visual works of Cardinal Mooney High School’s talented students.
The theme for this edition is “Heart and Mind,” a subject that serves as the key to unlock an individual’s true, heart-felt emotions. The past few months have thrown everyone into a chaotic whirlpool of mixed thoughts and feelings, each with a different point of view. Whether it is a feeling of hope, hurt, or resilience- just to name a few – students have interpreted these sentiments through their creative minds and artistic abilities.
From the point of view of a member of the class of 2020, the last few months of high school, and milestones such as senior prom and commencement, will be remembered in a different way than for other graduating classes. Through all of the highs and lows, the best part of the entire experience for me was completing something dear to my heart: The Crimson Feather. Several thoughts and emotions have crossed my mind during this tough moment in time, some not the most positive. However, the magazine has always served as my happy place, no matter how upset I was. Being editor in chief has certainly been one of the highlights of my senior year.
On behalf of every artist, writer, photographer, and mentor who contributed to this edition, I would like to say thank you for taking the time to enjoy The Crimson Feather. Open your heart and mind to each page of the magazine, indulge in each expressive voice, and know that, in times of separation, creativity is the glue that holds all of us together as one – the Mooney family.
Stay safe, and God bless!
