Closer While Apart

Even in this crazy time, students have made sure to stay in touch with their friends and family. Whether they use Zoom, Facetime, House Party, social media, or even a handwritten letter; personal relationships have strengthened over the course of this epidemic. This time can be used to bond closer as a family, and do activities together that you could not do when you and your family were busy. Try playing a board game with your family, watch a movie, or do something creative together. Do that puzzle you have been putting off and turn it into a competition to see how fast your family can finish it. People all over the world are taking advantage of this time at home to make a change or do something new. Some are experimenting with different crafts, while others are watching movies or television shows they just didn’t have the time to watch before. While this epidemic might be keeping us in doors, it is allowing us to make changes in our lives and strengthen relationships with those we care about.
