Will the world be changed after this pandemic is over?
Maybe this interruption to our lives is given to us for a purpose.
Maybe the pause is meant to allow our earth to begin healing itself.
Maybe it is time to allow the water to run pure again and to allow our air to be refreshed.
Maybe sheltering at home is a blessing for those caught in a routine they never expected.
Are we only on this planet to work, eat, sleep and have a few hours off to buy more stuff?
The idea seems laughable.
We can no longer pause to smell the roses.
The roses have been paved over.
We can no longer amble through the river meadows.
The flood plains have been turned into housing estates.
We can no longer take a leisurely walk because life might pass us by.
We have to go for a run.
The world is paused.
Maybe the futility of much that we do will become apparent.
No one should have to choose between food and medication.
No one who works a full-time job should live in poverty.
Maybe, during this pause, we will see that we get more from life by cooperating rather than competing. Maybe, during this pause, we will become refreshed, less anxious, less slaves to routine.
Maybe, during this pause, we will see the value in helping one another.
Maybe, during this pause, we will learn to share together in the prosperity given to us.
