Dear Shiro,

I believe you are well equipped with the know-how of the incidents that occurred in 2020. An unknown pandemic distorted our usual way of life. A highly contagious virus encroached human life, and nations all over the globe closed their borders. Millions were infected, there were recoveries, but the number of deaths was shocking. Factories closed, and a new piece of clothing- the facemask, was suddenly introduced to us. For three months, people had no idea what they were dealing with, and those who treated the situation normally, the virus- COVID-19 treated them abnormally. Factories closed down productions, and in such a short span, millions were rendered jobless.

Several countries struggled and managed to contain the spread, additionally, to mitigate the situation and protect the unknown future, it required leaders with a strong will. Many of these leaders emerged but later coiled in distress. On the other hand, scientists were looked up to; the healthcare workers were in the frontline fighting with an invisible enemy, sacrifices had to be made to control the situation. The pandemic reminded the leaders of their primary work to serve the people and not their selfish interests. Setting up sustainable healthcare facilities was prioritized, and the doctors were regarded as the heroes, unlike previous times where they were seen as just other social workers in the communities they served.

We all look forward to cleaning the earth, free from viruses and crashed healthcare systems. The cases of racism and xenophobic attacks are a dreaded curse that will only hurt everyone in due course. Peace and healthy international relations are the hope of maintaining a clean and sustainable environment. A conducive, green environment for the wildlife and the natural features is what we expect to have in the near future. We wish and hope that such a situation finds you prepared to deal with it in the future.

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.
