•    Our school has an objective record of this year in The Spartan and The Shield; we have recorded what happened, where it happened, how it happened, but all this is only outward. It is for the literary magazine to present the thoughts and feelings of the student body of BRHS to present a subjective record of the year.
       The magazine is named Unbound for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it describes the aura that surrounds the students: we are unfettered by the traditions of the other people who might have gone to school here before. We set the traditions. The second reason for naming the magazine is a literary one. In Greek Mythology, Prometheues was the knowledge-giver, the one who was responsible for bringing man up and out of his primal savagery. The gods were so angry at this that they shackled Prometheus and subjected him to awful tortures. The great English poet Percy Bysshe Shelly, uses this myth at the basis for his work Prometheus Unbound,  in which the Knowledge-Giver is symbolically free. It is from the epic that we derive our own title.
       And finally, this magazine is the embodiment of hope: let us never be bound by the harsh chains of ignorance, intolerance, bigotry, or conformity for conformity's sake. It is the embodiment of hope that the students of BRHS shall forever be Unbound.
