It was March 2020

It was March 2020.

It was March 2020.

People were put in lockdown to protect grandparents, families and children. No more reunions or family party meals. The fear became real and the days were therefore similar. But spring did not know, trees, cherry trees and others bloomed, the leaves grew …

Then on the day of liberation came, people found out on TV. The virus had lost, people took to the streets, they sang, cried, kissed their neighbors, without masks or gloves.

Everything’s going to be fine, stay home, protect yourself, and you’ll enjoy life.

Read this, share it and stay in love.
