Diary Entry December 2014
December 1st, 2014
When I found out that night, I was absolutely devastated and terrified. That is my sister, my cousin and my own mother. All of us were around the thanksgiving fire having an educated discussion which seems like yesterday. The whole family talking about how every ignorant person that thinks the world will end when the next war starts, but Ma, Lilly, and cousin Ann all knew that they are all wrong. When the world ends, it will because a virus that spreads easily through humans and its mission was to kill. I fear that the time has come and the virus was Ebola. This virus is destroying millions of families including mine. Just imagine for a second; not being able to hug or even touch your close family because of the high risk of catching the deadly virus. Everyone should be prepared and know how serious Ebola really is.

Today, I saw them take my neighbor, no a friend of mine, to the ER because she has symptoms of Ebola. I have coffee with her every morning and seeing her like that just tears me apart. A lot of people think of Ebola is a joke and takes it very lightly, but let me tell you. I lost a person close to my heart today at 2:33. Losing someone you told everything to... and then they are gone before you can say goodbye. Not only do I want to scream out but I feel scared. Being placed in isolation because her and I hung out every morning, seeing all these people that loved being around her that are now locked up and forced to take tests and medicine is crushing.. Losing friends is the worst feeling and Ebola has already killed around five thousand and is spreading fast, something needs to be done.
