"Looking on the bright side of life" by Nina Kern, 9a
At the beginning when the corona virus started going around, I wasn’t really scared about it, because I thought it wouldn’t get to Germany anyway. Guess I was pretty wrong with that. I wasn’t really recognizing how serious the situation was until I went to the supermarket some days ago to buy some ice cream. There were signs everywhere on the floor and at the shelves and when I went to the cash register to pay, I was kind of embarrassed that I bought only one thing, because everyone bought a lot of stuff. Afterwards I was shocked for being embarrassed to buy less than others. I also have a lot of contact to my cousin who just moved to Italy. She told me about the situation there and that they have to have papers to go out for grocery shopping.
Even though this situation is very bad I’m still trying to stay positive, because I think if we only see the bad sides, we won’t be able to stand this situation for much longer. It sure is bad that a lot of people can’t go on vacation or to work, but I guess that is still better than laying in the hospital and maybe never being able to go on vacation again. Also, I’m so thankful for people like my sister who work in the hospital and do everything they can and I hope that the government finally sees how important these jobs are and how much we need them.
My confirmation was delayed which makes me kind of sad because I really looked forward to that day, but I’m glad it didn’t get cancelled. Also, I’m not able to see my horse because only one person per horse is allowed to go to the stable and because my mom needs that more than I do, I let her go. Right now, I’m just looking forward to being able to see my friends as an entire group again one day and that we’ll be able to spend long summer days together.
However, we can’t stop the virus immediately, so we can just hope it will go away soon.
