Tara is a sophomore at Roseville High School and is a second year Peer Minister at Saint Joan of Arc.
In the summer she's beauty, she's calm, her waters are clear and grand, her waves crash calmly on the shore, she likes it when people find joy in her waters, she likes how the many creatures that she holds swim happily together enjoying her warm and cold depths and she loves when you take a moment to listen and talk with her
But in the fall she is a force to be reckoned with for she is not calm she's angry she's angry that the cold is trying to silence her she's mad at all the beings of the earth for using her in polluting the earth that gives her life so she brings down all the things they've made but no one knows what drives her to take the ships she takes, she will leave some battered and bruised and others she takes to her watery grave never to be heard from again
Under the blanket of snow she sleeps quiet barely stirring she has given her best but she is tired ready to rest she wakes up sometimes but is lulled back to sleep by the bitter wind and sleeps in icy stone to hard for any ship to pass through but still weak enough to kill letting it be know that she still has anger and is a force to be reckoned with and making it known that no one can fully control her
In the spring she breaks out of her icy blanket ready for a new year she brings life to her long banks bringing out all the aspects of the nature that survives off of her, she is beauty and calmness but still is windy for she has harmony with the wind, she plays a game with the sun where they are battling for how warm her waters are, she is happy she likes to wake up from her hibernation and start the cycle all over again constantly stirring and bring life to the world around her providing for her sisters and brothers for she is the greatest lake in all the land always powerful and strong never letting anyone control her for she is Superior
Our youth at SJA have amazing things to say. Our goal is to give them a platform to share their thoughts on topics they want to talk about. Their thoughts are uniquely theirs. From politics to faith, school issues to our church, this blog shares their voices with our community.
