This year, December 1st is no longer the same, the parades for this important day in the history of Romania have been replaced by the responsibility for those around us. The children who were sitting on their fathers’ shoulders, captivated by the beauty that lies in the heart of the Romanian people, stay home and wonder why. Young people dressed in folk costumes, dancing togethere, while the elderly remember with pleasure those moments they’ve lived a long time ago, they spend their time isolated from the outside world.
However, even in these moments, there is always a way to wish a “Happy Birthday, Romania!”. We communicate online and tell our loved ones how much we miss their presence. We try to adapt, thinking about how long it will take. We have all been affected in one way or another and even if we are not physically with those we need, we must keep going. The whole world needs support, and Romania, as well as other countries, has suffered. However, we adapt so that our safety and others’ are not endangered and difficulties are more easily overcome.
From my point of view, I think that the two worst things that someone can face are loneliness and helplessness, but I think that we have all found ourselves in them at some point. And yet, that doesn’t makes us too different from each other, doesn’t it? Anyone can reach a critical point in their life, just as anyone can receive comfort or even help in order to ease the pain or figure out the unknown.
We are looking for an assurance that everything will be fine, but there’s no way of knowing what will happen. We can only hope and support each other in the best way we can. Happy Birthday, Romania!
UNTIL NEXT TIME, MY LOVES! BYE! <3
