It is safe to say that the airline industry was pretty much paused for about four months due to the coronavirus. But it couldn’t go on in that manner for much longer.

“But You Don’t Look Sick”
Manny Al-Nsour, Web Editor • October 22, 2020

If you looked at 8 year old me, on the outside you would see a happy, healthy and active typical young kid. You would look at me and never consider that I have any health problems. What you wouldn't see is truly how sick I was. You wouldn't see the way I could barely eat, or all the weight I lost before I was even in middle school. One morning when I was in the hospital, a volunteer was going around...

I never kept an actual diary; looking back, I probably should have. Ever since I could remember, I had a difficult time expressing my emotions out loud, often quiet from all things truthful and meaningful.
