Seeing family abroad

By Maia, Age 10

The day we heard that there was a new virus, my dad went into a full-blown panic mode. We had to wear masks all day, we went into lockdown. The worst of it all was not being able to see my family in France. We had originally planned to go visit, but when covid hit and all the flights were closed, we had no choice but to stay home.

It had already been over a year since we last saw them, and my mom was going into a frenzy. He kept saying that if we didn’t visit our family we would lose the connection we had with them. After about 2 years, we were finally able to see them again. So, all in all, everything turned out well.
