Fellowship during the pandemic

This essay by Natalie Gross, a student at Timber Lake High School, received honorable mention in the Topic’s recent essay contest.

All over the world, households are fighting; loved ones are suffering; and human beings are dying. Despite this, our small neighborhood encourages each other to be patient and kind with one another due to the fact that we understand that we are all in this together. This pandemic has brought our city of Timber Lake closer together.

I notice people uplifting each other in exceptional ways. Whether they are calling their grandma to tell her they love her or placing colorful hearts in their window to spread love, there are small acts of kindness all over the town. There have been a couple evenings where a numerous number of people brought their vehicles into town and drove them up and down Main Street for about an hour. There was candy being handed out, horns were honked, and everyone got to see each other once more (while still following social distancing rules). During these nights, there was a sense of togetherness, community, and friendship. Anyone can understand that every person is going through this pandemic in their very own way. For this reason, the community is aware that the best thing they can do is to simply be supportive, and that is precisely what they have done.
