A Golden Valentine

By Mehar Nijjar, Reporter

“The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved.” – Victor Hugo

Valentine’s Day is a special time for us all, whether we spend it with our loved ones, our partner, or with ourselves. Not only is it a day to express romantic love, but to express love in general for the world and for humanity.

This Valentine’s Day, the Random Acts of Kindness club of Modesto High wanted to find a way to remind others that they are loved. About twenty club members got together on a Friday after school, and made personalized Valentine’s Card for the senior citizens of Vintage Residential Assisted Living. People brought a variety of craft supplies including card paper of different colors, glitter glue, festive ribbons, stickers, markers, etc. The club event lasted about an hour and also counted as a CAS experience as it required creativity and a degree of service towards the elderly.

A total of 56 cards were made, each with affectionate sayings and phrases written on them, some that even contained heartfelt wishes and compliments. However simple and slight this service may seem, the Valentine Cards were enthusiastically accepted and were guaranteed to make their recipients smile and feel, at the least, a glimmer of warmth on a special holiday.
