"Reflections On Our Times", by Daniel, Year 10

We were very impressed by Daniel's 'state of the nation' message and thought we'd share his excellent piece of writing with you. #ActiveCitizens.

DanielThe world is in a dire state right now. Thousands dying per day, families losing their loved ones, people separated. It may seem like there is no way out, that we are forever to be stuck in this phase where we are not allowed to see anyone and we have to keep ourselves locked inside, but that is not true. It may take time but the world will restore to the natural order of things, families will see each other, people will meet up with friends and all will seem right.

I know it may seem easy to give up and sit around hopeless, but that’s what will make the situation worse for us. People across the world are in the same state as me and you but they are choosing to do something. There are countless people dedicating their time to do something productive or to do something to help the key workers who desperately need protection. That is what we should be doing. Not sitting around playing games or on social media, we should be doing something productive.

There are countless people dedicating their time to do something productive

Also, take time to be grateful that you are surviving this virus when so many others aren’t. Take the time to be grateful to the NHS. Day in and day out the NHS workers are risking their lives for the greater good. It doesn’t even have to be something big, like clapping the key workers is a way you can show that you are grateful.

When this is all over, don’t forget about it. Be grateful you survived and that the world got back to normal but also take time to remember people that have died, whether that be someone close to you or a person in your wider community.

Don’t give up hope, things will get back to the way they were, we will see each other again. It may take some months, but we will meet again.

I would like to leave you with this message.

Hope is like the sun. If you only believe it when you see it you'll never make it through the night.

Daniel Connell, Year 10
