Damn You Coronavirus
Last August I held 2 of my 7 grandchildren —Gianluca and Milia—so tightly, with not a concern.
These two physically affectionate grandkids hug like there’s no tomorrow.
Today they visited Nonno Luch and Nonna Rosetta with their daddy Vince. Not just to visit but to deliver something for our fight against covid-19 our beloved nurse Flavia wanted us and kids’ maternal grandparents Ioan and Elena to have.
The sad part is that although schooled by their parents not to get close and touch, they quickly unbuckled their belts to run to us but we had to shout lovingly 😢’NO, stay back Milia and Gianluca.’
The look in both sets of eyes broke me.
And out of love for us and them they stayed back.
And I could tell they too were reluctantly embracing a coronavirus world.
My son vince said it best as he saw this unfold as he said, What the F? under his breath.
Damn you coronavirus. I hate you and whoever and whatever sourced you. And we and all of us are finding a way to destroy you. It will not be without some tragic losses but I believe in the power of God and the ingenuity of humankind to defeat you, you who are a destroyer of all that is good.
Lastly, FU coronavirus.🥶
I will embrace my grandkids and kids and friends again someday.
In the meantime we will fight!!
