    #What you do matters

    Jun 11, 2020 Go comment!
    This year, King David High School Linksfield’s Awareness Week is a little different to last year. Appropriately scheduled in commemoration of Youth Day, it focuses on ignorance versus activism. But this year, aside from the fact that each day will be experienced virtually, it takes place in the wake of a global pandemic which has highlighted disparities in our communities. It takes place amidst the horror and heartbreak of #Icantbreathe and George Floyd. It takes place as protests around the world extract the best and worst from human nature. For us, it’s clear that we can’t be passive. We can’t claim ignorance. What we do matters.
