Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 16

Today we celebrated my niece’s 10th birthday. I got to phone her on a video call to wish her happy birthday, and I’m still amazed how small the world has become.

In the 10 years since she was born, the world transformed, and we have things in existence we couldn’t even imagine back then. And with this, who knows what new changes the future will bring?

Someone asked me today what defines this as serious. I see massive numbers of infected people, recovered people, and people who passed on. I get saddened by the fact that each one of these people have a life, a family, friends, that are somehow affected by this.

When I see the news reports I am reminded that a crisis like this brings out the worst in people, and sometimes the best in people too. I hope we learn to find and keep our kindness, our soul, and our Ubuntu in the days and years to come.

Be kind. Stay safe
