A Special Thank You to Kids in Canada

Spring break officially ends on Monday, March 30. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all Canadians are social distancing. So, for the next few weeks, we will all be learning from home.

I hope that you and the people that you love are safe and healthy.

On March 22, 2020, Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada, made this message for the children of Canada. It made my own kids feel a little better, so I hope that it helps you, too.

To all the kids out there: All of a sudden, you heard you can’t go on play dates or have sleepovers, your playgrounds and schools have closed and your March break was certainly different than what you’ve hoped for…I know this is a big change, but we have to do this not just for ourselves, but for our grandparents, our nurses, our doctors and everyone working at our hospitals and you kids are helping a lot. – Justin Trudeau
