Canyon View Paper Cranes

Address to Governor Cox by Ian Jensen

Governor Cox,

As the Student Government officers from CVHS, we are honored to be here with you today as we represent our entire student body, the Canyon View Falcons.

An ancient Japanese legend affirms that if one folds 1000 paper cranes, the gods grant a wish. Governor Cox, the students at Canyon View High School have folded 1000 origami cranes for you.  We offer these cranes as our “wish” of prosperity to you, the 18th Governor of Utah.

Governor, each of these paper cranes is unique. They differ in size, color and style – indicative of the hands that folded them. We are but a sampling of the students you serve daily.  Like so many other youth throughout the state of Utah, we have experienced first hand the uncertainty which has literally rocked our world this past year.

As such, our offering of the paper cranes symbolizes much more.  The Japanese myth stretches beyond a wish- it grants healing, and symbolizes peace. To you, we offer them as a symbol and a wish by our students to end this YEAR. A year we have all endured- a year of racial injustice, economic uncertainty, remote learning, natural disasters, mental health crises- all the effects of  the  global pandemic, COVID-19.  A pandemic which has claimed 3,121,067 lives worldwide.

As Falcons, we look forward to the future, not wanting our past to define us nor our differences to divide us. But instead may we let this time unite us as we look back at what we have done, in spite of these difficulties.

Best of luck to you Governor Cox and thank you for all you do for the students of Utah.  And in case you don’t have enough masks, here is a CVHS falcon mask.

Remember, your cranes were folded by Falcons, Thank you!
