Stronger than corona
16 June 2020 | Youth
As I sit and think every day how life has changed in every way.
This virus has not only changed us, but the way we think today.
Millions and millions have lost their souls, but we must remain strong and united.
Corona has taken over not only our community and country, but the whole world at large. Schools have closed; we are scared thinking about our futures and what we can do next.
Although these days might feel long, together as people we stand strong. Humans have instinctively given this virus a colossal name and it’s become a huge fame. I myself would like to say: don’t give up, we will make it through anyway. Don’t lose hope, remain positive put on those thinking caps and become creative.
This is the time to shine as bright, show your true colours and change a life.
One day we’ll all look back at this and wonder what we could have changed. Don’t worry you’ll be fine, think of your future and make it bright. Rise now African child!
