  1. Just waiting for the waiting to end” —– so many stories wrapped in those few words, lives lost, lives interrupted and changed forever. We’re all waiting for the waiting to end, and hoping for a return of a normal that will likely never be again, but be replaced by some sort of new normal.

    The event and the aftermath will haunt us for years. Loads of love

    1. Especially during the ravaging second wave, it was unbearable to just sit at home and impossible to go out… and the news didn’t get better for weeks. So much loss.. it’s heartbreaking to think about the tragedy and the aftermath of the pandemic.
