A Bright Tomorrow - The September Edition
A Note From The Editor
When Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced in March that the UK would be entering a national lockdown, we couldn’t have foreseen the extremity of the situation. With Covid19 taking hold of the world with an iron grip, society was plunged into a waiting game; when and how we will surface from the pandemic is still unknown. For around six months our world irrevocably shrunk, with graduations, birthday parties and even school lessons taking place behind a screen. For perhaps the first time – certainly in my lifetime – the value of community was questioned, re-defined and appreciated unlike ever before. We understood how it felt to feel lonely. We understood the gravity of friendship and family. We understood the fear of living amongst uncertainty.
Yet whilst we may have hit pause on our own lives, the world itself is incapable of pausing. Domestic abuse, famine, conflict and racism amongst other issues do not stop for a pandemic and for many people, the reality of their lives worsened as they struggled to survive both Covid19 and these injustices.
