Shanghai Lockdown: The Epilogue - THP volunteer Experience - " Grandma And Grandpa, This Is Not A Dream "
"There are many elderly people in the community where I live, and some young people are unwilling to join the volunteer team because they are worried about getting infected. They also think neighborhood committees will have lots of work to do everyday. So as a Communist Party member and a veteran, I think it is even more important to render my support to them at this time. Although these things are their responsibilities, they are not obliged to serve us. When the lockdown started, I actively responded to the government's call to join the anti-epidemic team, put on the gear to became a volunteer."

The month of April 2022 lockdown in shanghai, brought into perspective a lot of things for different people. Be it disappointment, frustrations, contempt, self-reliance, perseverance, kindness, selflessness, etc. There are aspects of humanity that we have lost touch with as a society and I saw it coming back during this lockdown.
