If this whole thing has taught me anything, it's how selfish MOST of us are. People are dying all over the world because of war, sickness, and poverty; children are homeless in Haiti without even an inch of love, but because it doesn't directly affect us, we don't care. "Suck to be them," right?
No, instead, we criticise. We shame the mother's who fled their countries to do anything it took to save their children. "Damn foreigners coming here to steal our jobs." We condemned the boy who grew up homeless in Pakistan. Who, between the bleeding and fighting, was reading and writing, got himself into a fancy university, and is now your surgeon. "Why can't we hire doctors in our own country?"
Covid-19 is NOT worse than Ww2. The two are not comparable. Don't twist my words, however. Saying this does not negate how uncertain and terrible this time is.
I'm happy that we are taking the measures necessary to keep each other safe, but please be kind. Support your neighbour, help that friend, and when this is all over, think of the rest of the world, too. Don't be so quick to judge.
...Because someday, the person needing help, or just some caring, will be you. That's why I care.
