If you’ve had enough of it share your thoughts and feelings with the #GoAwayCOVID19
Here’s what’s on my mind:
It’s Holy Week 2020. And nothing looks familiar.
Empty churches, quiet streets!
Lonely homes, scared people.
You’ve ruined all the fun!
You ruined our weddings, sleepovers, playdates and Birthday parties. And this weekend you messed up all our Easter plans. Go away ruiner! Go away already!
You’ve exhausted our world leaders, Overwhelmed our healthcare and frontline workers, rapidly killing so many innocent people. Escalating unemployment rates, domestic violence and many more disasters! Are you wiping out the world or what? Go Away murderer! Go away already!
Covid, You have stolen all our social lives.
We miss being with people!
We miss the hugs, the laughters, the high fives! We miss everything HUMAN CONNECTION
Since when was social isolation a healthy guideline? People hoarding toilet paper and everyone getting bold haircuts. Till when will we stay like this?
You COVID Monster! GO AWAY already!
