I went to a mall few days ago and I had a conversation with the salesperson. We talked about the pandemic. The salesperson told me her daughter is in her last year of high school. Her daughter told her that her classmates and friends have been very stressful in this school year. They have been trying hard to catch up the school and worried about the learning and how (and whether or not ) they could go to university. Schooling has been quite challenging for them in the midst of the pandemic. Many have been suffering from depression. I gave my business cards to the salesperson with the promise of continued prayer and free pastoral counselling to the family and the youth.
The pandemic is not over, please continue to “be kind, be calm and be safe”. Together, we can win the pandemic fight.
