Hope in the darkness

By Layla, Age

Hi, I’m Layla. I’m in the middle of the pandemic and this is my pandemic story . It was a normal day in 2020 that changed our lives forever. A vicious virus by the name Covid-19 struck our country. All of the USA was suddenly covered in masks. The next day, I was introduced to the world of Zoom. When we were able to go back to school, I felt like I could not even  remember my friends’ faces. This was not a pleasant time; many people were dying and still are. All over the world, people were hoping things would go back to normal but now, this is the new normal. It’s been two years and it’s getting better. We are back in school and still wearing masks. In some schools, we don’t have to wear masks.

We’ve learned how strong we really are and helped each other when we needed it the most.

We’ve learned how strong we really are and helped each other when we needed it the most. I think everyone took a moment to realize what really matters. Now I feel stronger than I was before the pandemic. There is always hope in darkness.
