I See Hundreds of Happy Faces

Hundreds of Happy Faces on Social Media. The appearance of everyone enjoying life and having fun. The last two years of this Pandemic have not provided happy faces for thousands. I remained one of the lucky ones if, lucky is the correct word.

I See Hundreds of Happy Faces

The happy faces I see are on social media, hiking, out with friends, what appears to be a normal life.  Thousands have been separated by this disease, coined by the media as Covid Refuges. My two daughters are now classified as such. Stranded in London seeking to find a country that will take them and one not ravaged by this disease.

They remain healthy, however, the fear of this has taken a toll. They once felt hope and promise this will soon end. Now they are on the run.

Over the last three weeks, I no longer have a happy face or feel lucky, this disease has reached deep into my extended family, kids I have watched grow up made it through, now their mother and father are fighting the disease, like many others around them.

I had great plans, a new life ahead of me now those plans are gone. I am a fighter, today the fight is harder than ever before. When I see happy faces, I wish someday I may join you in joy, the feeling of being happy has been out of my life for a long time.

For all who have survived keep fighting. We all hope for one day we can have a happy face again.
