“Love keeps and binds us together. Love makes life beautiful. Were we to live without love for others, people would become merely objects we would hold onto until they were no longer useful or pleasurable. With Love, we have a purpose and find fulfillment. Every great story needs a great theme. Love gives the theme to our life’s story — and this story is truly beautiful.” ~ Gerard Morton, Lane County, 2020 first place winner in grades 9-10 essay contest
