2020-11-25In the midst of a pandemic, my parents also separated which left an intense question looming over the heads of my siblings and me. Who was going to be with who for Thanksgiving? I was informed about a week before Thanksgiving that all of my siblings were going to stay in Florida with my mother, which left me having to decide whether I was going to leave my dad in North Carolina alone or stay in Florida where I can finally spend time with my long-distance boyfriend after a long semester. I decided that no one should be along for such a great holiday and booked an impromptu flight from Florida to North Carolina. As my departure date approached I began to get very excited to spend time with my dad who I rarely saw, all the while the Covid-19 cases around the country were trending upward at an alarming rate.
