He can't celebrate 101 years because of Coronavirus: so he asks friends from social networks to give him 101 "congratulations"

April 02, 2020 • By Alison Forde

Forced social distancing in the time of the Coronavirus also implies not being able to hang out with our friends, going to visit our dearest relatives, in short, staying within one's own home walls in solitude, waiting for the storm to pass, if all goes well. At this delicate time for the world, even celebrating an anniversary or birthday has become a privilege for the few, if not an impossibility.

Something that happened to Owen, a man who will turn 101 on March 31 2020 but who, due to the forced measures of social distancing, will not be able to celebrate this extraordinary life achievement with anyone. This is why Owen has decided to publish a photo of himself on Twitter which says: "Hi, I'm Owen. I will be 101 on March 31. My birthday party was canceled due to the forced isolation measures. Help me celebrate it by collecting 101,000 Likes or comments.

Owen's request was then officially published on Twitter by Mohamad Safa, a United Nations employee who urged the people of the web to celebrate the centenarian's milestone to make him feel less lonely: "His 101st birthday party was canceled due to the coronavirus. Please share and comment to help us celebrate a special birthday with him. Take 60 seconds and do it for Owen! "

In the end, Owen's request greatly affected Internet users. At the moment, the tweet has received more than 150,000 likes and 21,000 shares, as well as more than 11,000 comments in which many users near and far have wished Owen a happy birthday, which we are sure will now feel much less alone within his own home.

Happy birthday, dear Owen!
