Once I heard the news that a virus had come to our country, called COVID-19, I thought at first it wasn’t going to be a big deal. But soon, I realized it was serious. Rapidly, we were in quarantine. I was worried and scared that my family and I were going to get sick. Days later, the news was saying that we needed to wear masks and not have gatherings outside our household. I didn’t know what would happen with my
education after hearing that school was soon closed, but was grateful to then have distance learning. At home, I thought of fun things I could do. I did a LOT of crafts! But, the most fun and cherished thing I did, was spend time with my family. Eventually, I got used to the masks and everything else we had to do. I knew I wasn’t alone and did it all with my family, who helped push me through it. Later on, I got a puppy! Mylo also helped a lot. He helped us not really worry so much!
COVID-19 didn’t really shape up to be as bad as I thought, but hey, I got to spend time with my family. In the end, I learned that there is always a bright light in any difficult situation.
