“Sorry can’t go to the park today, its closed”
I remember using that as an excuse when my son would pester me to take him and I couldn’t!!
Obviously until that time, parks and public playgrounds NEVER closed, so I couldn’t even imagine that this excuse/blatant lie would one day become a sad reality 😒
Now, I realize how important that neighborhood playground was for all of us, the one they today stare from afar, wondering why they can’t just swing on it, even for a minute!!
Soon, these parks and playgrounds will open again, the kids will get their swings back and I will never take that for granted again🙏
