Finally, joy returned

I decided to go out early today, the weather is beautiful, and the movement returned to the streets, and people are active … My wife said, man, take money and bring bread with you, do not forget …. I told her if you need something else, tell me on the phone, she said To me: I will not ask for anything. The kids need to wear clothes، I know our difficult situation these days ……. and I met some neighbors on my way, and we exchanged greetings and most of them spoke about the high prices and the difficult economic and living conditions …. and with That joy was evident in their eyes after three months of staying at home … I feel that they were in prison, and they went out of his way to freedom …. and the shops opened their doors and shopping returned … and people are like a beehive, as if the spring is blooming again … movement and activity ……. and I continued walking … I saw an abnormal crowding … what is this? What is this crowding? I asked one of the people who was waiting, he said to me: Look at the cardboard boxes, that they are distributing some food aid …. (rice, oil, potatoes, tea ……) …. and if you have your ID You can wait and get a box … I thought about it a little … and I said well, I will register my name, wait for my turn, and the supervisor gave me a number …. and the more time passes the more people, the number may have reached One thousand people …. One of the organizers shouted: The names have stopped, I apologize for you, the quantities are not enough for this number … The number reached 200 and I apologize to you … Maybe tomorrow you can come …. I looked at my number, it was My number is 200 …. I laughed in my heart, and I said This calls for optimism …. I was the last name on the record today …… After about two hours, my phone rang, and of course my wife was, where are you, man? Did you forget yourself? Where is the bread? …. Well, my wife, well … I am waiting for my turn to get food assistance, I will not be late, the remaining twenty names … And my turn comes … She told me: Do not tire yourself, do not stand too much, and Do not come close to others, be careful, well, well ……. another half an hour of waiting and my turn comes ……. I said to them: Thank you, thank you, From ten kilograms …… Ah, I did not think about that, that he needs a taxi, how will I carry it, and my wife is waiting for bread …. and while I think …. someone approached me and told me: Do you sell your box? ? I looked with astonishment … I told him: Why should I? He said to me: I find you confused and confused, as if it is a burden on you ….. I told him: Actually, you have a right, I will think about it, but I will open it and look at its contents and tell you my answer …. He said: Well … I opened the box, It contained a quantity of rice, a bottle of oil, a package of tea, a quantity of sugar, beans, and potatoes ……….. I thought a little about it … We have at home from all These things … But, my children need something to be happy with, especially on this long vacation … Every day they eat almost the same food …. rice, potatoes or beans …. They are tired of it, want something new and the price is very high When was the last time they ate sweets? ….. long time … they would be happy in sweets more … I want to see and hear their laughter and I don’t have the money to do that … …. I said to him: Oh man, I’m going to sell you the box ….. Give me a good amount …. Save money with me finally, I thanked God is in my heart, and I thanked the helpers …. I will buy them sweets, pens, notebooks, crayons and football …. Oh, how I wish I could see them happy, I will not forget the bread either ….. I arrived home .. And I called my kids …… Come, come, here are the sweets …. and each of you has his pen and notebook ….. and this football …. and the voices came up with joy, and the noise spread in The house ….. Finally I heard and saw my kids laugh again …

    I can’t speak English
    I’m writing using Google Translate.
    I’m sorry if there is a mistake in the text.
    Japan is now in a difficult situation with the new coronavirus infection causing economic collapse.
    Companies go bankrupt and the number of unemployed is enormous.
    The government has started to provide 100,000 yen per person.
    We don’t always get what we eat, and soaring in various things, we are spending days eating similar foods.
    I think it’s time to be patient now.
    I am sending the days when I cannot see tomorrow.
    Let’s manage to protect each other’s lives.
    Please let us know your situation in the future.
    Would you like to exchange information with each other?
    On the blog.
    I will contact you again.
    Thank you!

      My dear, thank you for your participation in my article, we must be patient of course, but faith and work in the good is the most important, we must cooperate, not us people but governments because the future is ambiguous, the most difficult thing in life is hunger, to dream about something that is near you But you can not get it, not only the economy stops, I mean poverty, poverty do you know the meaning of that, being dead while you are alive, being blind and you see ….. an endless story, that cannot be described in this place. ….. It is our luck in life …. We are only required to wait patiently for death …..
