I just realized that for elderly people living overseas, we might not meet them again.

Despite vaccine started to roll out, the borders are shut. New stronger strain of the virus are coming out.

Even if we could travel to the country they lived, it might not be safe to meet them. Perhaps at best, a meeting separated by plastic lining and PPE.

We still can't hug them.

Who knows how long this pandemic might persists. They could very well simply die of old age before this is over.

Perhaps we should properly say our goodbye while we still have time.
