There’s a colloquial term in Kaysville that drives a particularly powerful effect: the ‘bubble’. Students and adults alike feel the effect that this ‘bubble’ has on our society and the disconnect it creates between our community and the outside world. So it begs the question: is the bubble more hurtful or harmful?

 

”It’s not a really good representation of the world when you’re looking at it on such a small scale. There’s a lot of things about Kaysville that make us different from the world,” SBO Jonah Feigleson said.

 

Being isolated from the world outside our community no doubt has the potential to create a cultural blindspot. But in addition to that, it evokes a single story that is deprived of foreign opinions and perspectives.

 

“You don’t get to see other people’s point of view and sometimes that hurts you,” Feigleson said.

 

But the bubble isn’t all bad. People can often be surprised as to how similar and spectacular individuals outside the bubble can be.

 

“[There’s] good in everybody, not just people in Kaysville,” calculus teacher Mrs. Barney said.

 

In opening our eyes to a world outside our own, we have the potential to grow and mature and help that effect translate into the people of Kaysville.

 

“Really notice how wonderful people are… I think people have to watch out for that, Barney said.

 

So the bubble has the both benefits and blemishes. It is a matter of how we choose to use it.

 

“Don’t view the bubble too negatively. I like to see it as something that just exists and it has a lot of positive qualities and a lot of negative qualities,” Feigleson said.

 

In the end, it is truly impossible to see the lasting effect of the bubble on a person without having something to compare it to. In discovering the bubble’s outside for ourselves, we create the best chance of gaining a global respect and understanding.
