In writing an article, I thought it would be important to focus on how the actions and decisions we make influence the world around us. In this constant state of unprecedented change, humanity must band together if we want to surpass this difficult time. Now, you may be thinking, how big of an impact can I have?
Well the answer to that is, huge!
This doesn’t mean we have to single handily solve all of society’s current issues. It means making the small everyday choices to be kind to yourself, engage in learning and connect with others. We don’t realise how good we have it until it gets taken away and we are one of the lucky schools to still have access to programs like Zoom and our teachers so make the most of it.
By using our education, we must be the ones; the ones to not panic buy, still donate to project compassion online, do the shopping for your grandparents and at local stores to boost the economy, washing our hands for 20 seconds and saying a simple hello to passers-by (from a 1.5 metre distance of course). You never know what kind of impact you could have on someone’s day.
For some inspiration to wash your hands for 20 seconds, check out this awesome compilation of chorus’ that goes for 20 seconds:
