Hope is the Key to Success!

I thought that the coronavirus would not affect me because I am young and healthy. Now, I realize I am wrong. The coronavirus does affect me and everyone around me. I have heard people who are losing the people they love the most to the coronavirus. It is now that I realize that I should be grateful for what, and who, I have. I realize that everyday is a risk to my family. My mom works as a CNA in Michigan. She told me that there was one worker in the facility that she works in, who was exposed to the coronavirus. At the time, I didn’t think much of it. I should’ve. Due to this, my mom could have been exposed to the coronavirus and my whole family could have been exposed when she comes home after work. I think that this is the time of my life that I have felt the most fear. The fear of losing the people who raised me to be the woman I am today. This fear is something that everyone should feel at this point of time. And this is why I am angry at the part of society that ignores the coronavirus like a mosquito. The people who think it won’t affect them because of their young age and their strong health. I haven’t discovered that fear inside me that I truly felt until now. Realizing that everyday my mom goes to work and makes money to raise her family, that it is a risk and could be for nothing. This is the reason that society needs to hear and have hope that it will get better and that the worst is over. Nothing will be the same and everything will change, but having hope is the key to success.
