It's been a year since we're not in normal situation. Actions were limited. Need to follow protocols in order to prevent the spreading of the virus covid-19. Many people adjust to the situation.Employed, unemployed, rich and poor were affected.
Last year March, many people panicked because of the announcement of lockdown due to Covid-19. Many people were afraid for there families might get affected. But what scares the most? People were afraid what to eat when the whole country have to be lockdown. Good for those who can afford to buy food for there self before the lockdown. But how about the employees who need to work to earned for their daily needs? How about jeepney, tricycle, motorcycle , bus and taxi drivers who needs to work outside just to have food for their family. How about vendors outside like magtataho, street foods and small stalls of goods? Carpenters, farmers and more who need to work hard for their family? We all experienced how hard it was. The fear what to eat the next day when we knew that the food were limited.
Some people were mad when they saw many people outside strolling around without knowing why they were outside. We should not judged those people. Why? Because we don't know what they went through during the lockdown. Some people were still outside doing there work because they don't have food to eat if they stopped working. Their family might get hungry and that what they afraid for. Many employees were need to stopped working in the company and know what? They were struggling now for they know that working was only there hope but they can't do anything because they were just an employees. Many babies were now in danger because they were prone to the virus so they need to stay especially the people around them should see to it that they were not affected. Many people were affected and follows the protocol. Many people also got envious with the government employees because they still have their salaries but you know what? They were also struggling. Their works got doubled and more complicated. Polices and armies were doing their work too as frontliners. The medical team also were very exhausted with the situation because they were in contact and in danger zone. But no one look for what teachers were doing. Teachers also were in hard situation. We should also thank them though they were not teaching face to face, they were not in fault. Their worked was not easy. If I am a teacher? I will choose to teach in the classroom than in this time of situation because it was tiresome yet no appreciate. Their higher official give them more works especially paper works that they need to submit which is kinda hard for they were not complete with tools especially technology tools. They need to monitor the childs progress that they went to baranggay to baranggay just to check how was their students. All employees were affected, private or government , no excuses because all experienced difficulties.
The hunger rate in the Philippines last year rised and it was the evidence how the virus affected the whole country and other countries as well. Many people were dying due the virus but many people also were dying because of hunger it leads. Hunger because of the lockdown. Many people said that we were all in the same boat but actually no. Yes we were all affected but not in the same situation. There were still people who can eat three times a day during lockdown but many people were eating less because they need to save for the next day. Yes the government gave goods and money to people but not all. There were still many people whose waiting for goods yet they were not qualified but they still need it too since they were still struggling. See? We were not in the same boat but we were in the same sea, it just that we were not in the same situation.
Last months, we were happy because we thought that things were getting in good condition for we hoped that everything will go back to normal. But we were wrong. Tomorrow , Mar.29 will be the start of another lockdown. Many people again are afraid and disappointed. We can't blame them because it's been a long time. We want to get back to normal where we can move without wearing a mask and faceshield. We want all to be normal again. Lockdown may bring another difficulties to everyone. The need for food and daily needs. Another situation to face, another problem to conquer.
I am afraid for my parents and family again because I am still unemployed since I graduated in college, it is because all the plans were suspended due to this situation given by this virus. How I wish and pray that everything get back to normal. May the Lord grant our prayers.
