Judah, age 11
The pandemic has been a struggle for everyone far and wide. It has been a struggle through my family as well. There is one thing that has kept my family and friends close, hope. The pandemic has done so much to us, people have separated apart from each other during this time. People are being rude and mean in the world and it’s not right, but through all the struggles life has thrown at my friends and family, we have stayed together and pushed on through.
As I am growing and getting older every day, so are my friends. We have gotten lots of new opinions on things, but because of hope, we have been able to push on through this pandemic and stay friends while there is hate and meanness throughout the rest of the world. Since the pandemic, me and my family have been forced inside more often than we used to be. We used to go to places all the time but recently we have been forced inside more often but we are growing and learning more about each other by playing games and enjoying each other’s company. That is how hope has kept my family close.
