Carson's journey through the Corona Virus pandemic was difficult. The pandemic appeared one day and it changed everything. It caused businesses and schools to close and it created economic hardships for many people. Children were not allowed to go to school so they had to learn on-line. Just like so many other children, Carson struggled to navigate through distance learning. He suffered from ADD and it was difficult for him to sit for long periods of time to try to focus and learn through a computer. Carson used to hate to get up and get ready for school in the morning and now he wished that he could go to school and see his teacher and his friends again. He missed hanging out with his friends at school. Carson never imagined that he would live through a pandemic and he never imagined that he would see so many people suffering. At times he felt sad and even depressed. There were so many people who had contracted the Corona Virus and become sick. The healthcare system was overwhelmed in many places and there was a lack of available beds in hospitals. Carson was afraid that he or someone from his family was going to get the virus. He constantly washed his hands. People were losing their houses and their jobs and many of them were forced to stand in Food Bank lines to get food because they could not afford to buy groceries. Carson felt overwhelmed by everything that was going on around him. He struggled to keep his grades up during distance learning. He felt lonely and he wanted to see his friends again. He was afraid to ask for help even though he knew that he was struggling emotionally. Carson watched the news and he knew that scientists all around the world were working hard to find a cure for the virus. He wanted the scientists to find a cure for the Corona Virus so that everything could return back to normal. He wanted to be able to go out to restaurants and to the movies with his family. The pandemic taught him to appreciate spending time with his family. He grew closer to his family and they helped him to make it through the pandemic.
