Spring has commenced and so has the scourge of covid 19. Both have arrived at the same time. Though covid was there during all the seasons, it has surged viciously now. Spring brings with it new hope and beauty whereas covid raises the ugly heads of death and destruction. It is here that we need to bring in the balance. We need to defeat covid by taking the necessary precautions and welcome spring with the resolve to make our lives beauteous once more. We must not allow the disease to break us. We must allow the beauty of the spring season to engulf us once more.
