When lilacs last in the dooryard bloom’d,
And the great star early droop’d in the western sky in the night,
I mourn’d, and yet shall mourn with ever-returning spring.

Ever-returning spring, trinity sure to me you bring,
Lilac blooming perennial and drooping star in the west,
And thought of him I love.(...)

Walt Whitman, When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d

Spring is back!  On a Easter morning it's a poem we can repeat that makes Spring seem more intensely itself.

Today is Easter, the most important Christian religious holiday and widely regarded as the second most popular holiday in general after Christmas.

Students and teachers got Easter school break in European countries where the schools are not closed.

But more or less all around the world, most of students are at home, on remote learning due the pandemic time that continues unfortunately.

It’s impossible to overstate what this crisis will mean for the pandemic generation.

There is no doubt that persistent lockdowns and school closings have affected children everywhere.

Extensive surveys conducted by Save the Children also found that nearly half of all children said they were “worried” and a third reported feeling “scared.”

The sudden closing of schools and elimination of educational summer activities in many communities might have lifelong consequences for children who already live with severe social and economic adversities, impairing even further their ability to read at grade level, graduate from high school on time and have equitable access to post-education opportunities generally. - wrote Irwin Redlener on The Washington Post.

However, we should acknowledge that some children have exhibited unexpectedly high levels of resiliency and independence while dealing with the restrictions and disruptions imposed by the pandemic. 

I would like to share with you a message of hope. 

Life can toss us down and make us fall out of the blue, but the hope inside us will pick us up again and again!

We do not lose heart when we fail in life, as it is only the start of our journey. In the end, we will be the one to achieve our goals.

“Happy Easter

May the renewal of life

At Easter bring new

Blessings of love, hope,

Peace, good health &

Happiness to you and

Your loved ones..

Embrace the renewal of life.” 


Happy Easter ! Be safe !
