For over the years, none of us knew something like this, would happen.
LIFE IS SHORT
Everything is temporary, including your life. Yes, on a brighter note we should express gratitude that through this (though unlikable virus), we had our chance to spend more time on ourselves, with our family and everyone around us. We read the book, we longed to open. We had fun spending days with our lovable pets. We learn more than of what we know by browsing the internet. We thought of investing for greener pastures. In a nutshell, we discover more of ourselves, which doesn’t come out in nature easily. And all of these realistically came out because we had the TIME – and that surely gives us all a credit.

Front liners risk lives to protect the mundane community. The generous behavior, compassion and sympathy disregard racial disputes, social rank, gender bias et al. Our health worker’s effort will never be futile, together – we shall heal as one.
RELIGIONS CAN UNITE
