Just Thinking

Dear Yuri,

Lockdown was a struggle for me to be honest. I tried to look on the positive side of things. I tried to tell myself that I would be okay but everyday on the internet I would see another person dying and another horrible crime being committed. I thought to myself “where has all the good news in the world gone?”.

Then it hit me, all the good things were right in front of me begging to be noticed. I grew closer to family, I learned more about the world, I learned to appreciate the power of music more, I got to thinking seriously about what I can do to help my part of the world and I grew to love the people who always stood by me. I found a new love for life and love.

These are the things that mean the most to me today and after this experience I’ll look back and be grateful for them for the rest of this life I live.
