Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.Thich Nhat Hanh
Imagine a world where:
There would be global understanding and actions on all measures required to address Covid to end this pandemic;
Countries share in commitments needed for the sustainability for vaccines and health care resources regardless of where you live on this planet;
Health care workers are shown the respect they deserve by people doing all they can to prevent illness rather than small groups banging pots and pans;
When people speak of individual freedoms, it just means being able to live in a world free of this virus;
Angry rhetoric gets replaced by care and concern for all peoples as a shared priority around the globe;
Political pandering is replaced by collaboration and co-operation to educate, encourage, and support and challenge the spread of misinformation;
Economic supports actually benefit real people so they can stay home when ill and struggling small business owners rather than bloat balance sheets of large corporations;
Efforts to continue professional sports are equally afforded to all artists so they may continue to bring their healing works to the world;
Hope becomes the driving force behind everyone’s desire to achieve a new normal where we could prevent this virus from disrupting and devastating lives again and again.
If only we could do more than just imagine a world where….
Stay healthy and safe!
