While the true origin of Valentine’s Day is not clear, we do know that sometime during the Middle Ages, the day became widely recognized as a celebration of love. In fact, the oldest known Valentine still in existence is a poem penned in 1415 by a French duke.

This post was written by 2018-19 FLVS Full Time Senior Class President, Carson Brown.
In February of this year, I had the privilege of meeting a friend in person on our schoolwide field trip to SeaWorld. The first interaction I had with my peer was online while participating in 2018 Shark Week – a virtual event hosted by our student council that consisted of five days devoted to networking for FLVS students. I watched the live chat as students showcased their Halloween costumes on “Wacky Wear Wednesday.” One particular comment that caught my eye was an unassuming, clear statement.

“This is so cool!” the comment began. “I have found my people.” Continue reading
