Also on the bus ride home, we heard about Leo Varadkar's (the Irish PM, called an Taoiseach, which is pronounced like tee-shock or tee-shuck) statement about the latest actions the government is putting into place. He ended his statement this way:
'I know that I am asking people to make enormous sacrifices.
We’re doing it for each other.
Together, we can slow the virus in its tracks and push it back.
Acting together, as one nation, we can save many lives.
Our economy will suffer. It will bounce back.
Lost time in school or college will be recovered. In time, our lives will go back to normal.
Above all, we all need to look out for each other.
Ireland is a great nation. And we are great people. We have experienced hardship and struggle before. We have overcome many trials in the past with our determination and our spirit.
We will prevail.'
I thought his words struck exactly the right tone.
Take care of yourself.
