Glittery Notebook

Dear Yuri,

It’s been 2 months since I got to see the busy streets of our city. It has been 2 months since I saw my other relatives and friends. 61 days of praying and hoping that everything will be okay and that all is well.

Before this quarantine begun, I bought this notebook in which I thought I would use for my drawings and sketches. Never thought that this would save me from my loneliness and anxieties when it hits me. The funny thing is, I did not use it for my drawings. Whenever I feel really, really down, I wrote it there. For me to be reminded of how strong I was that day. I wrote every piece of emotion that I was and still feeling all throughout this worldwide struggle.

This quarantine has been hard. It has been hard for every human being in this world. I know that after this pandemic, all of us will never be the same. We will be so much stronger than before. Because, we will fight together until this battle ends.
