Those days were peaceful. We could do whatever we wanted. We did not have to be that scared of germs. We did not need to keep washing our hands. We only did so when we needed to.
I miss the days when the pandemic did not exist yet. Those days were peaceful. We could do whatever we wanted. We did not have to be that scared of germs. We did not need to keep washing our hands. We only did so when we needed to. We did not need to sanitize our cell phones every day. We did not need to wear masks. We could freely breathe in the fresh air. We did not need to be scared of others getting us sick when we go out. We did not need to bring hand sanitizers with us. We could touch anything without worrying that we will get sick. We could touch our faces. We could touch others.
Now, those days have ended when the pandemic was born. These days, anyone can get us sick. We will not know until we start to experience symptoms of covid-19. We are supposed to take a lot of precautions when we go out, but some laws said that we do not need to take a lot of precautions. Now, a lot of people got sick with covid-19 and died as a result. People say not to worry until we experience the symptoms. To be honest, experiencing the symptoms is too late because it will cause a lot of chaos at home, especially for big families. The symptoms will easily spread to one another. It is hard to escape from them. To prevent them from spreading, one must take a lot of precautions by quarantining themselves or living somewhere outside of their home.
These changes make me frustrated and resentful of the world that we live in today. No one saw this coming, but it could have been avoided. Who knew that one careless mistake can cost the lives of so many people?
