LIKE A COIN,CORONAVIRUS HAS TWO SIDES.

Posted April 15, 2020 from Nigeria

The first time I heard the word 'coroavirus',I laughed profusely because the word was funny.

I said to myself, what kind of virus is this? I now decided to call it "Made in China virus". 

My sister's, little did I know that this " made in China virus " as I called it would be declared a world pandemic.

I was so terrified. As a matter of fact,tuning into some t.v stations made me more terrified. Imagine seeing people die like animals.

Now that the virus is at your door step,you are left with no choice than to be strong.

Sister's,with all the lockdown here and there,I have come to realize that covid-19 has two sides:-The GOOD and BAD sides.

The GOOD side of it is that,covid-19 has brought about togetherness in our countries and homes. For the very first time, the whole world talks about one issue,the t.v and radio stations talks about one issue,the people (including our young ones) talk about one issue and we even sing one song. 

I had a chat with a couple of women just to hear there view,and one of them said,for the past fifteen years in marriage,this is the first time her husband who always comes back home late at night is at home for 24 hours.He now cook,pray,wash the dishes,clothings and have fun with his family.She's happy like wise her children too.

The bad side of it is that,it has taken so many of our beloved ones. Some generations are wiped out.Everything has come to a stand still.Our plans have been shattered.We are now like prisoners. Some women will become widows,children orphans and some of our girls/women will become victims of violence.But we have to be safe and strong for them.

Cry no more,because it will soon be over.There will definitely be a way out.

Together, let sing the song HEAL THE WORLD by Michael Jackson.

Love-kisses-hugs

Sarah Hi :) sad to know, because of irresponsible acts many people need to suffer on this pandemic. There will be global depression because of this. Let's continue to be positive and respect those families who lost their loved ones.

You are not alone, we heal as one!

Hi Sarah,
Thank you for your very interesting post about this virus. One thing that we shall never forget is how it has brought all together. This virus has not discriminated against any nation or anyone. We shall also never forget the number of people that it has taken from us. We pray for mercy and love and we pray for togetherness in families.
Have a lovely weekend and remember to stay safe and alive.
