Plants, Animals, and Farmers Oh My by Arionna Moore

With large amounts of fossil fuel and pollution going into the air, the environment has been declining greatly, and this has caused global panic from scientists and environmental activists.  Pollution and other human activities have caused animals and natural resources to change greatly. Many places that used to be filled with animals and plants are now factories, or areas where human activity is large.  Human activities have caused animals and plants to change their way of living and to unnaturally move away.  Covid-19 has had a similar effect on humans. Covid-19 has caused humans to be contained into a small space because of threat to their species just like many of the plants and animals that have been driven away by human activities.  Humans are now trapped indoors because of the commonly known coronavirus, and with this, human activity has reduced greatly.  Since people have been trapped indoors, not as many products are being made.

Since the student athletes at MHS are unable to have their daily workouts with Coach Ray, and they are unable to get into any gym at this time, Ray has been providing them with new ways to workout at home.

There were many trees that had fallen because of the wind and the tornado that had come through, and many businesses had lost parts of their buildings.      I had gone to downtown Mooresville about 20 minutes after the tornado had passed because my mom has her office right on the corner of Main Street. Thankfully, her office, Fairway Independent Mortgage Company, was one of the few that had received no damage from the storm; however, almost every building around hers had experienced building damage such as roofs being torn off or hit, windows being shattered, and even the fronts of some buildings had come off.     It has been almost a month since the disaster and between the firefighters, police officers, power companies, business owners, and the town of Mooresville, the town is being rejuvenated. The streets of downtown Mooresville had just opened back up on Saturday April 25, 2020 after be…
