Seemingly, our self esteems are as fragile as the screens of our cell phones. Look around, nearly everyone is cracked.

This past weekend marked the death of one of the long-lived traditions at Broomfield High School. Exactly one year ago on Sunday, was the day of the last winter dance that our seniors, and possibly juniors, will ever see.
