I saw this little message this morning on a friends Facebook page and it really gave me a little bit of hope in these strange times.
“Just imagine when all this is over, imagine the day when Leo comes on TV and says 'lockdown is over, its lifted, as a nation we've done it.' Imagine the irish public running outside their houses, hugging each other. Imagine ringing your nan & saying 'Put the kettle on, I'm on my way.' Imagine been able to see your family face to face rather than through a window or a face time call. Imagine going into the pub & grabbing a pint... Sitting in the beer garden taking in the sun (or the rain, cause it'll rain more than likely) Imagine walking into any shop & being able to buy toilet roll, pasta & all other life's essentials that we always took for granted. Imagine driving into town & being able to pull in at Maccy D's for your Big Mac fix. Imagine going to the cinema & out for food on date night. Imagine all the street parties, the first day of doing what you want. Cause it might be shit now, but if there's anything that will get us all through... It'll be how we will all feel when it's all over “
A quote from the Shawshank Redemption seems very appropriate right now
“Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things and no good thing ever dies. “
