Staying Connected

By Violet, Age 12

When Covid-19 first hit, we went into remote learning.
Because of my dad’s health conditions, I could never
see any of my friends and they disliked Zooming so I
was all alone by myself. Then one day I get a text
message from my friend who I never see; saying she
wants to Zoom! I was so excited. We both went to
different schools and never saw each other until
summer break (which was only for about 2 months). So
when I heard she wanted to Zoom, I was overjoyed! So
every Monday night, we would be on Zoom talking for at
least 2 hours. We never run out of things to talk about.
Whether it is about things that are going on at school,
homework, or sometimes we just watch random videos
of celebrities as kids. She is my best friend, and I am
happy I get to see her more often. Now we Zoom on
Fridays and we could be talking/watching videos until
10 pm and not even notice it!

the beginning was

hard, but now it’s easy with a friend!

So yes, the beginning was
hard, but now it’s easy with a friend!
