Pros of the Quarantine

 

Hello once again cougars, I hope you are having a great day as usual! For today’s topic, we have something that hasn’t been given much attention before. We all focus on how Covid-19 affected our lives negatively but have you ever given thought to the positive it did for the world? Now, I am not saying that Covid-19 was a blessing in disguise, but that it gave the earth a break. 

 

Have you ever thought about the pollution in our world? Sure, we have all heard about the problem but have you really looked into it and how it affects us? If the answer is yes then maybe you saw that popular post of India and how much cleaner the air was after just a few months of people being inside their house, not that many cars, and not much trash in the streets. Years of damage were healed significantly just with some months. It happened the same in Italy with the water being much cleaner, it even had dolphins because of it! Mother Earth was truly grateful for the short break, it is our home but we harm it more and more every day. 

 

Life in quarantine wasn’t half bad for most people, some’s biggest concern was just not being able to be outside or hang out with friends, while on the other end of the spectrum people were poor because they lived by the day and covid left them unemployed. The moral of all this is to be grateful for what you have, everyone always seems to want more than they already have but don’t look at how lucky they are to have their privileged life. Gratitude should always be a given no matter what, and being alive is a reason enough to be grateful. No to pollution, stop global warming, and save the earth. Stay safe cougars!
