The shadows of depression and suicide have been creeping into the lives of American teens. One 13-year-old girl from Minneapolis ran into the woods. The mother saw her daughter’s phone and she was shocked to see that there was self-harm from her daughter’s ankles in the pictures. She followed her daughter into the woods in hopes that her daughter would not commit suicide.

Although the numbers of COVID-19 infected have significantly decreased across the United States, parents and children couldn’t help but feel that worry that there is another COVID-19 variant lurking in the city. Mayor Eric Adams said, “We did our jobs as New Yorkers, and now we’re winning. Covid is no longer in control of our lives. We are in control of our lives.”
