COVID killed my field trips

In May 2019, my fourth-grade class went to Raleigh. This field trip was the single best of my life (so far). The fact that we were allowed an exclusive tour of the North Carolina Capitol Building Senate Chamber was great.

Last year in March, COVID hit. I was in fifth grade. We were going to Charlotte for a whole day in May, but COVID cancelled it.

This year I'm in sixth grade, and we can't go on any field trips. Along with not being able to go to friends' houses, it makes it a lot worse.

While supply is low and demand high, it might be hard for everyone who wants it to get it right now. However, I feel like I still have to vouch for getting the COVID vaccine. If you are thinking about not getting the vaccine, please, we all need you to get it. Thousands more will perish, and the economy will struggle with the constant opening and closing of businesses. Thousands more will join the millions who filed for unemployment, and kids all over the country will struggle with the hardships of virtual learning.

Getting the vaccine will quicken the return to normalcy and boost the people of the world's oh-so-important morale.

Again, please get this vaccine. It will help the entire world. And hopefully, next year in seventh grade I can go on my epic field trip journey.
