    It's so crazy to realize how fast it all occurred. Every morning when I wake up , can't believe it's true. Afterwards I am each time more convinced that bad human behavior is responsible for this. Surely mother nature will repair itself...

    when the virus came, why are people making prices bigger when people are in struggle? yes yes I know, because people won't come, but no! seniors, parents, and more are struggling..especially the young teenagers who don't know what to do /: okay another message, this virus has let us change what we do, think, and act..people think this is the end of the word, reply and choose an answer, simply by saying yes or no by an explanation you don't have too (1) (2)sentence :((( after watching this i felt totes heartbroken, some people just don't care, this is worser than SARS 2003, yes @A N it's like Thanos snapped his finger :) note: I was trying to lead information to you, please no hate, tyy!

    Personally I dread going back to the way life was before. Asides from the staggering, dreadful loss of life, and the hardships many are suffering, isn’t it time to re-evaluate our lives, how we live, and how we can stop killing the planet we live on, if it’s not too late already?

    All other species in the planet ( except for all the billions that are enslaved, tortured and murdered constantly by humans ...livestock) are hoping this is a new beginning for them, but humans will soon resume destroying the planet....there is no doubt that humans are the worst kind of virus into the entire natural world.
