A Year With COVID-19
By Munziba Khan
It has been year since the beginning Of the pandemic and the world started spinning. As a student of public health It’s something that I studied before But the reality was so much dire That it shook me to the core. The world stopped moving and life stood still But the virus kept moving rapidly With a vengeance to kill. We called it COVID-19, a coronavirus. It came with a vengeance to control our iris. COVID-19 tested our patience to the extreme And only path to defeating it Was for the world fighting as a team. The battle to defeat the virus Was fought with diligence and sacrifice. But the politics leadership became a hindrance And displayed the fact that our world is in a vice. People wore masks and social distanced. Even in the presence of COVID-19 fatigues and resistant. COVID-19 infected and killed millions, Worst pandemic in a century. The frontline workers sacrificed so much, And kept us safe, thanks to their bravery. We lost loved ones suffer and even die. Suffering alone in isolation, Without a chance to say goodbye. Through the darkness of the virus Came the fruits of working with collaboration and vigor. We saw the rapid discoveries of effective vaccines, A breakthrough thanks to the scientific rigor. With a hope for immunity, People desperately seeks the vaccines. But distribution is a constant nightmare, Leaving us frustrated with patience beginning to wean. But let us not forget our lost loved ones The lost partner, friends, parents, grandparents And daughters and sons. Their loss is tragic, leaving wholes in our heart. We ache in sorrow and pain, Holding on to the memories that our love ones impart. As we look towards a time of normalcy When we will all be together on society that thrives. Let us not let COVID fatigue control our lives. More sacrifices and patients are needed So let us be diligent and not be conceded. As together, we will be stronger. And will so defeat COVID-19 And will not be distant from loved ones any longer.

America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to my gofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.
Help make sure all hungry Marylanders have reliable access to nutritious food when you join Sustainers Circle.
PLEASE DONATION ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic.
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring contents to you.
