Because I don’t want to get it Because that would mean I help spread it But there’s no one else who is able to do it And supplies need to be replenished. So I wear the mask and say a prayer That I may not be included in the statistics And that this sickness, never touches my family.
I’ve been following Joseph Gordon-Levitt (500 Days of Summer, Rush) on Instagram as I’m a fan of his work. I also like his community-website HitRecord. So on his Instagram, he posted this “April-must-do list” that one of the HitRecord member created. The list suggests what you can do or post on the website for each day of April – kind of like The Daily Post here in WordPress. The list suggested for the 3rd of April this – ‘a year from now’. Coincidentally, I have been thinking about what would happen a year from now. So, I used this as a bit of inspiration for today’s post.
I sit here outside our terrace and I wonder what would happen a year from now.
Will we learn and remember all the valuable lessons this pandemic has taught us?
When we look back a year from now, will we be looking back with anguish or anger or fear?
Will we be more appreciative knowing the difficulties we all had to go through?
Will we be kinder to each other?
Will we be better people?
I look up at the sky that’s slowly turning orange from blue, and I wonder what would happen a year from now.
