When I brought up the word “normalcy” with a dear friend the other day I was very perturbed to hear them say “I forgot what normal even is.” Well, let me be the last one to remember, whatever it takes! I’ll never forget what life used to be like before the COVID-19 pandemic. Canada was a free country. Now, it seems we’re on the verge of being a communist dictatorship. The best I can do from the safety of my alcove is inspire hope and remind people of what Canada used to be before these crazy mandates restricted our freedom.
I can’t wait to walk into a grocery store without a mask on my face. I can’t wait to go to a movie theater without proof of vaccination. I am so excited for Canada to become Canada again!
