What is “Hope”? Hope is believing; a wish for good to happen; it’s even a second chance. My name is Emma. I am going to talk about “hope” during the pandemic. When Covid started, it wasn’t fun, but you could say it got better. However, it’s still here, and still not fun. We’re always trapped and wearing masks. You can’t go anywhere without it. I always try to have hope even in the darkest moments but sometimes it’s just not there. For example, distance learning, I was at home all day everyday and I hated it, because I wasn’t seeing my friends everyday and playing with them, like high-fiving your teacher’s hand everyday after school when you leave. Those are some struggles I had. Not traveling, not going to restaurants, not leaving the house, and not playing with my neighborhood friends was even worse. Even though I didn’t get to do a lot of stuff, I was still able to spend time with my family and if I couldn’t see them, I would have been very sad. In conclusion,
you should always have hope and believe, believe that you get strength from your family and friends and everyone that you trust.
