Predictions for the USA include numbers as high as over 400,000 deaths by the end of 2020 from COVID-19.
We’ve been so lucky in Ontario. In London-Middlesex we’ve seen days without new cases. But fear of Corona Virus has mandated the use of facial masks and still has limits on the number of people permitted to gather. Churches still remain closed and School openings have been delayed.
I went to the playground with my grandson yesterday. Although the equipment hasn’t changed it’s very sad to see the loneliness in my grandson’s eyes as he is no longer permitted to mingle with the other children and must keep his distance. The public washrooms aren’t open, so small children duck behind trees to pee.
My heart breaks for all the children that are learning not to trust others, keep their distance and constantly wash their hands.
