The Graduation Class of 2020 is Unique. They have Real World Experience. They are living in a whole new world. The positive changes that are taking place due to COVID-19 will make the world better than it was before. After our prayers are answered all over the world, people will come out of their homes and be changed forever.
Teens, are you being emerged into heavy emotions and changes due to the harsh reality of a Pandemic? It can be considered a nightmare or a blessing. What do you think? Are you changing? Make Positive Changes! Get on youtube and see what others are doing and be creative. It doesn’t matter if you just make a difference for your family or friends….just make a difference!
The Coronavirus is real, whether people accept it or not.
I want to Help! It’s why I started Teen Say. Let’s Open the Communication Lines! What are you guys thinking? Parents and Teens, are you reading this? Do you want a say? Have your say! Email us at Mariann.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teens, does this seem like a bad movie? What do you think? People are actually seeing the positive changes the Pandemic has had on the World. Do you see them yet? Look for them. Do you see the opportunities?
The World needed to make big changes and operate differently. It was becoming a dark, anxious place for many people. Emotional Distance, Miscommunication in families, Suicide, Anxiety and Depression issues had been increasing. People needed to be connected again, revived to feel alive again. The World Needed a Miracle. We are not robots! We can’t become robots!
This pandemic might aide psychologists in having more free time. When we tried to interview a few about suicide in past years, they told us their offices had been backed up for weeks. Some didn’t even accept new patients. We did get Dr. Brad Sachs from Maryland to talk to us and he is known all over the world for his books and TV appearances. Check out our video on Teen Say Youtube. I wonder what he thinks about the new communication. We will ask him soon. People are talking, sharing, and communicating better than ever before. People are taking care of one another with No Tax Bracket Barriers. This pandemic may just be a miracle in disguise.
Seniors of 2020 may be the closest graduating class in history. They are connecting to their friends on a level they may never have. They want to know how their friends really feel. They want to know if they are scared. They are leaning on one another. Bill Withers just passed away. He wrote my favorite song from back in the day, “Lean on Me” Alexa, play, “Lean on Me.” The Class of 2020 is learning to share their emotions with one another. They are in a whole new world. It’s a great time to watch some fun Disney Movies with your families. It’s not stupid! Feel again, laugh, wake up your senses. It should not be a time to just catch up and clean up. Make the time count!
Teens of today are resourceful, brilliant and are now sharing their feelings. They will be amazing adults. Wow, teens are becoming smarter and more experienced than ever before. They have already encountered major world experiences, more than any class before them. Thanks to Coronavirus, teens will have better relationships with their families and friends when they leave for college.
Social Distancing can create closer relationships. Phones were meant to be talked on. People my age remember talking on the phone until our parents screamed at us to hang up. We had deeper relationships when we were teens. Ask your parents if they talked on the phone for hours? Talking is better than texting. Texting is so cold and confusing. It’s great for parents or friends to send quick messages: I’m here. Come out. Quick notes are awesome and can save us a lot of time but as sole communication between friends or breaking up with your Boyfriend or Girlfriend – Cold. I am the most honest person you can meet. I wear my heart on my sleeve, as my friends say. Dr. Libby thought that. Check out our old show, “Dr. Libby’s World of Medicine.” I am Real! Are you? Are your parents real? Everyone is real now. The World is Real again. This epidemic may just be a miracle in disguise.
God will give us the answers and discoveries we need….in his time. We must do our time first. Perhaps this is a big lesson for the world! 2020 is still in the Beginning – it will become a Great Year – Miracles will happen – it’s not the End! It’s a year to change the world for the better. Change and Motivation Keep Us Alive! I know this is Scary for all of us but, it’s not the end for all of us. Unfortunately, some of us will die. It seems like we are at war but don’t know how to kill the enemy. God will help the brilliant doctors and scientists learn quickly and find a cure to kill the enemy virus. The World is Praying in Unity. God hears us! He will answer us when he is ready.
Writers, Singers, Inventors, Doctors, Nurses, Business People, Teachers, Police, Fire Fighters and First Responders are using their brains and creating things to help or inspire others. This is how America was built! Dreams are alive! Political and Business Leaders are making New Laws and New Plans.
It’ time to Step Forward and Change the World. It’s a New World…isn’t it? But, it still has people in it. People helping people better than ever seen in history. People that are so different than our past ancestors and leaders. We are smarter, healthier, wealthier and more resourceful. We have the gift of technology. We had to change the way we were doing things, the way we were living. The Government and Medical World had to speed the pace up.
People are learning every political and medical rule that was written in steel can be changed for the good of the people. We are adapting and changing our lives daily, which is a great skill to have on the rollercoaster of life. It happens to families when illness or death occurs. I know that personally because my first father was killed in a car accident when I was a teen. I thought the world should stop but it kept going.
The Government made us Stop! The men and women we believed in and voted for want to keep us safe during this emergency/crisis. They want us to stay home and are paying some of us to do so. They want to stop the spread of this horrible virus.
Everyone loves to stay home and have family time during the holidays. They look forward to it. They bake, they cook, they talk, they catch up, they watch movies together and play games. Make this a holiday with your family.
The Government Leaders are in this with us! They are people and have loved ones in danger as well. Together …We will “Stop the Spread.” We just have to stay home. Why do some people act like they have been thrown in jail? I’m sure real prisoners would love to be where you are.
Doctors and Scientists have to invent new medicines quickly or mix old ones differently in order to save the elderly. The Government must stand behind them. It should be up to the families or patients if the trial drugs are tried on them. I would want to try it if I were dying, would you? They have to put an end to this pandemic.
Teachers are eager to start teaching again. 2020 has been a Unique Year, we are all learning so much about each other and the world. Students are learning at their own pace with access to a real teacher for help. Some private schools charge a lot of money to educate that way. Tutors charge a lot of money for individual lessons. This could help the education system discover better ways to teach in the future. Kids might actually advance at their own pace or be motivated to do better. Find the Positive.
Parents have learned how to teach their own children again. They are doing things with their own kids. Some kids and teens are growing vegetables and gardens. They found the time.
Teachers are truly amazing. They are sitting on their computers longer than they are paid to do. They want to connect with you. They want to answer questions for You – their students. They are sending teens hello cards by mail. Teachers really care. Zoom….let’s learn. Homeschool for everyone, some people actually choose to learn that way for a better education. Before you know it…the quarantine will be over and you will be graduating.
We are learning that people really do care and will step up to help one another. Wow, the things people are doing for others is such a blessing. “World Wide Unity.” The Robots of the World have become People. People of all races, religions and tax brackets are united- to help one another. God must be proud!
We did have to bring back the true meaning of family. It’s nice so many of us are cooking and eating together as a family again. We needed to learn to communicate with our teens again. It’s nice that they are trusting us again. They are listening to us. They want us to keep them safe. The World needed to slow down and see the real riches of this life: Health and Family are the treasures in this life. We can add toilet paper, Lysol and hand sanitizer to that. lol
Things often change in our lives with no warning. It’s how we adapt that makes us who we are. Teens and Kids are worldly now. They have learned how to deal with change and crisis. How will you change? I really hope you are all keeping your own feelings in notebooks or journals as I said in my other post. It affects us all differently. You need to share it with your kids someday. We hope Not to see another Pandemic in our lifetime. I hope the world stays changed and keeps moving forward with unity and empathy.
We all live under the same sky, sun, and moon. We all look up at the stars…..Wishes are fun to make on them but faith and trust in God make our wishes come true.We are all connected…it’s about time we understand that.
Your favorite Actors and Singers are sharing their stories, experiences, and emotions with you about Coronavirus. You are getting to know them. They are getting Real! People are saying, “We’re all in this together.” It’s true we are! Everyone is trying to connect and help one another. It’s the Blessing the world needed. We are real, we all feel and we are not Robots!
The world is finally in unity asking God for help. The World has never done that. Everyone shares the Same Prayer, the Same Church under the stars, and the Same God for once. No one is different! I hope we can keep some of that going when this is over. Do you agree?
I wrote this little song years ago:
THE WORLD NEEDS A MIRACLE. A SONG TO SING ALONG. A REASON TO BELONG. A NOTE FOR THE TOTE.A REASON FOR THE FIGHT; A WAY TO SEE THE LIGHT. THE WORLD NEEDS A MIRACLE! Crisis, Crisis not another Crisis. God help me! HE’S THERE! HE CARES! What’s the fuss? There’s enough for all of us! The World needs a Miracle.
2020 has a UNIQUE GRADUATING CLASS that can navigate social media better than most computer engineers. lol They can connect to one another and start new traditions for graduation. Change is Great! Traditions are good but the world is changing and so should the traditions. It used to take five people in charge to change a decision for graduation even if it was just a banner. Now is your chance to make changes and add new traditions. Parents, Teens, Teachers, Principals, step up! Share ideas so everyone can add something special to it. Make it Unique. Toilet paper poles on the dance floor. Haha, Each year should be unique! This year will be great!
The Date and Place of Graduation can Change! Parents will help you! They will all Step Up after the quarantine is over. Parents love to volunteer, work and overachieve. LOL Parents looked forward to this date and will HELP! You earned it! Principals, Teachers, and School Administrators are very concerned for their students. They want the best for them, that is why they went into the education business. They want to see you achieve your goals and graduate. Summertime Graduations at your favorite Stadium, park or beach. Yes at the beach, before Beach Week. Why not? Live a little. It’s ok. It’s not that hard people. Plan! Use your computers and hotels. Make it fun! Beach week will happen. They will find a cure for Covid19. When is your beach week? Plan! Pack! Wow! Beach week will be a wild celebration.
Watch Teen Say, the experiences and stories you hear may help you change your life. When I was 22, the purpose of Teen Say was to open the communication lines between adults and teens. When I started it back us as a Mom of Four with adult kids, Teen Say’s purpose had changed. It became more educational and made it to Fairfax Public Schools, Channel 25. The shows have always been on Channel 10 Fairfax Public Access and Youtube. Teen Say talked to a D1 Soccer Coach from JMU to find out how to make a D1 Soccer Team and be Game Ready. Teen Say learned all there is to know about football from start to Pro from 2019 Virginia State Champion Coaches.
After this, you could do your own show with us if you contact us. Perhaps we can share things you and your friends did during this time on Teen Say. Send us the Youtube link. You must have parental permission. Share, Vent and Learn! It’s wonderful! Social Media is a Blessing! It connects us all near and far from around the world. You are not alone! After this is done…you can do your own Public Access Show- Parents or Teens. It’s free and fun! We’re all in this together. Hang in there!
