I don’t like to gossip.
Like, I hate it. And I always feel so guilty after when I partake in it- in any form.
But today it was hard to ignore.
Whispers all over school.
Some saying the same thing,
Some with new information to be passed along.
I tried to walk away.
I tried to turn my ears.
But it was everywhere.
And I wanted to hear more.
Finally we were all able to talk openly about it, which made me feel better.
But nothing came of the conversation.
And now I have to sit and wait to hear
How COVID-19 will affect my school.
