Unity is the state of being united or joined as a whole. Unity Day is the national day of bullying prevention where orange clothing is worn to to give light to a rather dark subject. In support of this day, retailers sell orange products or someone may take an orange coffee thermal to work as another form of support of Unity Day. It’s not just about wearing orange and bullying, it’s about coming together to be unified.
On Wednesday October 24, 2018, Estancia High School commenced its first Unity Night. Unity Night, like Unity Day, is about people coming together in support of the prevention of bullying. Unity Night at Estancia High School was hosted and supported by ASB and the Link Crew program. Admission to Unity night cost $6.00 including a TK Burger meal of one’s choosing. “The food was delicious!” junior link leader Xitlali Martinez said. Food options included either a cheeseburger, hamburger, chicken sandwich, grilled cheese or veggie burger. These also included a side of some delicious thin crispy fries. Leslie Ventura, another junior Link Leader said, “The fries were pretty bomb”. Hanging with friends and eating TK Burger was only the beginning of Unity Night. After eating from 5-6:30pm came the movie. Unity Night 2018 presented Avengers Infinity War. The night ended with a PG-13 rated movie in the big gym from 6:30-9pm.
