Keeping the Hope!

By Lilah, Age 11

It was November 2019 when it started. Stores closed, no leaving…this was chaos! My dad started feeling bad and I was worried for him. We went to get him tested and he had it. My mom and I stayed far away and he quarantined himself in our guest bedroom. At the time, I had online school, but it was not fun. I didn’t see my friends for a full year! Just when we thought it was getting better, a new type of virus came into the world. It looked like there was no hope…then a light shined through and someone had found a vaccine for covid! Soon they started to give the vaccine to kids. We also figured out that the masks doctors wear also protect you from covid. Everything was going back to normal!
