The Swine Flu is an epidemic that is currently affecting Mexico and unfortunately it's spreading to some other countries causing quite a variety of social problems.
At the begining of the epidemic nobody thought it was going to get so bad, as a governtment decrete there was no school since last friday (I thought that was cool at first but now I wanna go back), then on saturday I went to Puebla to visit my grandma (Puebla is a neighbor state), for my surprise everybdy stayed away from me (T.T).
The number of people infected increased but till that point the number of deaths due to the virus were uncertain, on monday, I was watching a press conference about the recent events with my momma and my bro and there was an earthquake. (Is this an attempt to kill mexicans? An epidemic and then an earthquake? I hope it isn't)
The earthquake wasn't so bad so we moved on.
So well, this week has been absolutely boring, no to mention stressful and worrying. I've baked, a sign that something's not right and yesterday my 8 year-old cousin had to spend his b-day locked in his house, I gave him a cake, that made him a little happy, Another decree says that nobody is going to work until May 6.
(Ok, that was my POV)
A lot of actions are being taken right now, Mexico wants to get over this as soon as possible so mexicans stop being affected and also because we don't want to affect other countries.
I wrote this so you could see an average mexican's POV, and also to ask you to do me a favor:
PRAY!! pray for Mexico (please), pray for your countries, PRAY FOR YOUR FAMILIES!!!
I know that if we all act as a whole we can get over this quicker, GOD is going to help us through this.
One family mankind, one home the Earth
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
