THE FLOWER MOON
THE FLOWER MOON
Alaina Le, Staff Writer • May 9, 2022

What is the Flower Moon and How Did it Get its Name? According to a survey given to select iUPrep students, 0% of them knew what the Flower Moon was, so let me tell you about it! The special full moon of May, the “Flower moon,” is the last full moon before the summer solstice. This magical moon got its name due to all the flowers that bloom in May.

Milk Moon, from the old English Rimilcemona, means Month of Three Milkings, from when cows would be milked three times a day.   What...

In light of the Russia/Ukraine crisis, so many are wanting to attain peace and grasp it in a way that allows it to be a permanent fixture of society rather than a band-aid waiting to be ripped off. And sometimes, a certain level of peace can be found...
