The Truth About This Pandemic

In this season of the pandemic, we share our grief and empathy to the souls who fought their battles against COVID-19. We were frightened and terrified with the news that has been circulating on Social Media and television. Seeing humanity struggling to fight back with the unseen threat has caused fear and anxiety in most of us, which unsurprisingly, many are afraid to go out and go back to normal. Most of the industries, from government and private companies to individuals, were greatly affected by the major outbreak and have dealt with the new normal with the inevitable negative impact on the economy. We were tested financially, spiritually, and emotionally. Everyone was hoping that this would end, the sooner the better. Despite the tragedy, there are a lot of things to be grateful for.

1. The heroic act of the front liners.		
We saw how deeply they dedicate their time and effort to the whole community. The moment they accept the challenge to become the soldier of the nation, another life has been put in danger to save the other. It is such a brave act to continue to serve the people despite the worldwide crisis. It's not because that is their job but because they wanted to serve and save humanity. 

2. Life is beautiful. 		
The outbreak has become an eye-opener on what's the meaning of life- it must be lived, not suffered nor survived. The gluttonous opportunity that COVID-19 has provided has made us reflect and has contributed to change in our perspective in love, art, nature, health, and all small things. 

3. Health is wealth. 		
As we face the challenge, another battle is going on; the battle on maintaining our health. Indeed, we can say "health is wealth". It has become a valuable asset, everyone is learning in any way possible to protect and fight for it. We take supplements to boost our immune system and eat healthful foods that are essential to continue to improve and optimize our overall health. 
4. God is good. 		
The COVID-19 has become a human catastrophe in our lives but it gives us value and to appreciate what's important, life. This illness knows no status nor wealth. Some of us finds comfort and security in our home, others may not stay at home to provide for their family and knowing the fact that we are still alive and still have food in our tables, can continue to support our family, and has not been contracted with people who has illness, that itself is something to be thankful for. God is still active amid the pandemic. This global pandemic taught us how to be in this world and reflect deeply on what is certain. 

Though, we do not need to have a pandemic to give value and to get this awareness of life; but as we continue to fight that even the weakest part of us, become the strongest army. Tomorrow may not be promised, but we are all hopeful- even if the sky is cloudy, the sun is already shining from afar and will rise for betterment and healthy tomorrow.
