Have you ever heard of the famous Woodstock Festival of 1969? Not many current high schoolers have. Woodstock was a festival that was put together by ordinary people. It was designed to protest the Vietnam War, and it did a damn good job at that. The Woodstock Festival left a significant impact on the young adults of the late 1960s. It was a 3-day long festival that practically shut down the entire state of New York. People parked their cars on the highway and started walking to the festival from several miles away. Nobody could stop them. At first, Woodstock was predicted to host under 100,000 people, but instead, over 400,000 people were in attendance. The festival was known for having a fairly long lineup of extraordinary music artists of the 1960s. Some of them include Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, and Richie Havens. 

Enough about the Hippies. This is where the Ocean State ties into things. I would be willing to bet that just about every event during the spring semester of high school will be canceled due to the Coronavirus. Whether it be prom, graduation, or anything else, it will probably be canceled. I would hate to see anyone from around the state of RI, and in this year’s graduating class have a disappointing senior year. I have a plan that would make Rhode Island’s High School Class of 2020 go down in history. 

Why don’t we have our own Woodstock? What’s stopping us? We could have a massive event in a park located somewhere in RI this summer. We would have music, we would have food, we would have everything we need. If everyone rallies around this, it is 100% possible. Don’t let your senior year get ripped out from under you. Take charge. This is your moment. Make an impact on Rhode Island. Make an impact on this generation. DEFINE YOUR GENERATION.
