Michelle also wrote that she knew that many people were doing their best to make the new memories through attending church online and having virtual dinners with their loved ones. She ended the message by asking her followers what plans they had to mark Easter.
While many trooped into her comment section to reply her question, Elle noted that this wouldn’t be the first time that Michelle would be sharing a message of hope during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
During the World Health Day, she posted a photo collage of healthcare workers with an appreciation message to them for working on the frontlines and risking their lives for millions of people around the world.
As for other members of her family, CNN disclosed that Barrack also shared a tweet which he used to inform people that although Easter celebrations looked different this year, “our unwavering faith remains the same.”
The former President then explained that Easter was not only a “reminder of rebirth and renewal,” but that it was a sign that better days were ahead.
