The Whole COVID-19 Experience has been an Eye-Opener , it made me realise that this Life sometimes which we take for granted is so precious & beautiful, we need to step up as Good Citizens and support each other during these unprecedented times, the Crime Rates have increased over the period of time so Reporting something unusual to the Police as a responsible Citizen could even save precious lives & specially victims of Domestic Violence.
The First Lockdown was very challenging but gradually I have learned to adapt to the New Changes and accept this as part of our daily lives, Safely comes First and government guidelines needs to be followed for your own wellbeing and your loved ones .
As a Key Worker I would define this Situation as a Challenging One because as in my profession we have to interact with others, due to Social Distancing guidelines it makes it difficult occasionally to carry on certain mission but over the period of time we will find reasonable solutions.
The Pandemic so to speak will be part of our lives for a while , and we need to follow Safety measures and be responsible for our own actions and also have a sense of responsibility towards others .
My Message is a message of Hope for everyone with the coming of Vaccines and hopefully the Whole Situation is gradually going to rectify, as a human race we have seen worse situation than this , so it’s time to unite as a global community and if countries support each other then we will come out of this faster .
The Government is trying their best and is using all the Resources to help everyone financially, we need to be Responsible and give our own little contribution
