On that note, hope was also a prominent backbone of WHO’s latest official video conference message on Monday, March 9. In it, WHO’s Director General, Dr. Tedros, spoke buoying words about success rates and the remaining potential to still contain the virus based on the large-scale successes in China and South Korea, concluding his update with words that resonate well with us here. He stated, “…these countries demonstrate that it is never too late to turn back the tide of this virus. The rule of the game is never give up….Let hope be the antidote to fear. Let solidarity be the antidote to blame. Let humanity be the antidote to our shared threat.”
During these challenging times, we do remain hopeful and optimistic. Those words resonate with us. The WHO’s head epidemiologist further stated in that update that “absolutely there is light at the end of this tunnel.”
We don’t have answers about when that light will appear. However, we are holding onto the vision of that light. We do believe in a brighter world returning, in a matter of time. And we believe in staying connected, to each other and to the most reliable information, as being our antidote to this virus’s varied threats. Now more than ever is a time to stay connected, rather than letting this virus fracture and disconnect our world.
So, we are always here to chat and answer any questions we can. We are empowered with 26 years worth of wisdom, having experienced many situations over those years.
