“There is just news. There is no good or bad.” -Master Oogway, Kung Fu Panda
Today most of us would have received multiple forwards/ messages, good ones, bad ones. Let us all try an exercise tomorrow, if it is a forwarded message that makes you feel low, stop. Do not forward it to anyone else and ask them, "Is this true?" "TRUTH revealed.. etc". There are government channels out there to give us news. Just that. News.
This information is for us to use to protect ourselves and our loved ones from diseases, and harm. Please share messages that make us richer, stronger and better in this fight.
This is the journey of a thousand miles that we have started together. For most of us, this war against the virus is more of a war against disease- against humans falling ill because of avoidable circumstances.
If we look at this objective, it is where all of us can work together to minimise the chances of death due to communicable disease.
I do not know what the next few weeks look like. But I know one thing, every time I open the window and see an empty street, with brave members sitting indoors and making a sacrifice- every time I roll down my car window on the highway and tell the cops- "I am a doctor", and we nod at each other and move on with our work- every time I see chemists and shop owners tell their customers to maintain safe distances and continue their work- I know I am not alone.
I know we are all in safe hands.
Stay safe, and enjoy the weekend!
