Staying Positive

By Reid, Age 11

Hello! My name’s Reid! I lived through the Covid-19 Pandemic. It was rough, but it is also one of the best things that have ever happened to me. I had more family time. I met some of the best friends I can ever meet. So we begin on the one day I get home from school. My uncle had just visited, I just ate at a restaurant. The next morning I woke up and it was basically a complete lockdown. My family was scared and stressed. I was worried too. I knew one thing though. I would make the best of this once in a lifetime coincidence just like those people did. So that night my family talked, and we decided that this was going to be the best couple years ever! The first month we made really good meals. Then, we made lots and lots of postcards to friends and family. We definitely made the most of this situation!
