I have missed my friends, my teachers, my sports, going out to the movies with my friends and family and seeing everyone in person. To be honest, it’s been very quiet, it’s very, (long pause) like it’s very, (pause) awkward, it’s really very awkward.
You are very used to seeing your friends, but just staying home, it’s just hard for people. I am very scared for the homeless people. I am very scared for them and sad for them because when it rains they have to sleep in the rain, and their blankets, their warm blankets, get very cold and wet, and I don’t think some of them have masks so I am very worried and scared that some might get COVID from touching the floor but not sanitizing their hands or washing them somewhere.
