On Covid-19…

As the world is waging a war against #covid19,

Our little family has been fighting our own battle.

When the world was advised to stay at home,

That was what we have been doing for many years.

When the world was panicking and stockpiling food,

Our mother couldn’t even swallow food.

When the world was told to self-isolate,

We couldn’t even get close to our mother when she was in pain.

As the world fears losing their loved ones,

We have been living in fear of losing our mother.

Though #covid19 started only last year in 2019, we have been battling for years before this. And I believe we are not the only family who have been suffering. There are many families who have been going through the same thing long before the arrival of #covid19, and more fuel has been added to the fire now that the #coronavirus is another threat to them and their loved ones. So that’s why we must always be kind to one another, not only in times like this, coz we don’t know what battles other people are fighting!

Sending our love and prayers to all our friends in China, Italy, Iran, South Korea, Spain, Malaysia, and all around the world…and we would also like to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to all those doctors, nurses, and health workers who are sacrificing their own time and putting their lives at risk to combat the #coronavirus. A salute to all you amazing, selfless people – may God protect you!

Stay safe,

Omar Mukhtar
