Life is too short to see the lasting differences we imprint on this earth. Yet one small action, or ripple in the pond, echoes and spreads affecting the future. We don't know if these actions will ultimately lead to good or bad. All we know is there are things we are willing to die for.
This is the way of the Guardians.
And in junior year the covenant will feel the effects of this ripple when one pebble is dropped; the presence of Chase Collins.
