Reflections from lockdown

Day 3 …. Superheroes

While the world sang praises to our essential workers and sent memes reminding is our ancestors fought wars and all we needed to do was learn patience, brave the uncertain and stay at home, our children showed us how to be superheroes.

Many far too young to understand the severity of Covid-19 suddenly unable to work school, play with friends, see family members.

Their little lives and routines were abruptly shattered as they continued with childlike enthusiasm and drew pictures, crafted to keep busy, took zoom meetings and now adjusted to a virtual life in their stride.

Their bravery, adaptability and joy often reminded us, the big people, that we too could endure this pandemic.




A few mothers got together to applaud the children ….

These little heroes have stayed indoors more than they’ve ever known in their lives.Their whole worlds have literally been turned upside down. All these rules they’ve never known. A life they couldn’t have imagined. Adults talking about others becoming ill, news reporting death after death. Our poor children’s minds must be racing.

Every day they get up and remain resilient.

So here’s to our little heroes: today, tomorrow, forever 💞
