A band-aid can represent many things:
Childhood memories of falling flat on my face in the playground, teenage years covering pimples in shame, or healing cat scratches and random wounds in different times of my life.
Today, the band-aid on my arm represents relief, a sense of community and medical achievement.
Who knew that I'd get so excited to have a vaccine shot. Who knew?!
Not me. Not until this past year.
A year of growth and making lemonade out of lemons.
And now here I am with the band-aid on my arm, a badge of honor for a historic year, and I am smiling big despite the vaccine's not-so-fun side effects.
