A true sign of strength is resilience and courage in the face of hostility, danger, or any issue that comes our way and either overwhelms or interrupts life. As global citizens, we have been faced with the after-effects of a monstrous virus, COVID-19. It has seeped into our nation and interrupted our lives, thus, changing the course of humanity with a new normal pattern of living.
Families share their home space with their work lives. Children find schooling either online in front of a computer, face-to-face in classrooms equipped with plastic shields and hand sanitizers, or in a hybrid model. Masks are expected to be worn to contain the spread of a disease that holds no boundaries. Yet, in this upheaval of life, a sense of humanity toward each other needs to grow from the center outward. in addition, a reverence for the earth must be rekindled to slow down anxiety-producing feelings of quarantine life. As resilient survivors of a not-expected lifestyle, we need to seek ways to transverse the gnarled paths of life in search of optimism.
