When covid first started up, I was very worried, nervous, and aware of what was going on, but just like any situation, there is a positive side with hope. I think me and everybody else were focusing too much on that worried feeling about what was happening and going to happen. Now covid is still hard but not as stressful. I learned that covid was here for a reason. After all, fate planned it.
In any situation, there is always hope, and that hope that is burning bright lives inside of me and you and all of us. You just have to allow yourself to see it. We will get through this! It helped to bring the state and communities back together stronger as one.
