Life truly does happen.it has been several months since the Corona Virus pandemic hit our nation. An announcement in the media that Kenya has confirmed its first case of the COVID-19 virus popularly known as Corona disease that was first reported in early December 2019 in Wuhan China became a game changer.
The president of Kenya, Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta further went to declare that all learning institutions should be closed with immediate effect, save for boarding schools and tertiary institutions which were accorded a few days to comply in a bid to curb the spread of the deadly virus.
As an employee in a learning institution this announcement rang a bell in my mind. Nothing had prepared me for this closure. The following day being Monday, I set to report to work only this time feeling disoriented with the turn of events. On arrival in school, the blank expression in the learners faces fuelled the confusion I felt. ‘’Teacher, do we have to really go home?’’ One student asked me. To say the truth, I dint have a response for this, I was totally at a loss to explain why things had to turn out that way. Fortunately, when we discussed the pandemic and how easily it is spread, they were at a better chance to appreciate the closure of schools. I prepared take a way work for them and trusted God that we would meet each other after the virus is tamed.
This quarantine comes with its share of challenges and on a brighter side with deep reflections and soul searching. My children are all at home, a teenager, a three-year-old and one-year-old. I can confess, it is a daunting task to keep them lock-down.
This is a season that comes with deep reflections, ‘’What really is the essence of life, devoid the normal working routine, the paying of bills, bringing up children and the allure of acquiring more wealth?’ Despite the fear and anxiety from this virus, let us keep hope alive. Thoughts about the havoc Covid-19 has caused to human kind leaves all of us with insurmountable fear and worry, what keeps me going is to know that I should not allow the things that I cannot control to determine my actions and thoughts. I cast my fears to Almighty God. My prayer every day is that God may strengthen me and every one of us to have unwavering faith, to be fearless and to follow the precautions set by the government and the medical professionals of washing hands with soap, keeping a safe distance from the other person, avoiding crowded area, staying home if one has a cough and working from home if possible.
One thing Corona pandemic has taught me is SELFLESSNESS. The world is now than ever before coming together to fight this common enemy. We can demystify Corona when we call it being
Careful On Regulation- Always kNeeling for A prayer.
