there are many things that are changing around the world.
due to COVID-19, the life that we know has changed.
with many countries closing their borders and implementing strict regulations on movement within and without of the country, it might be time for us to realise the seriousness of this. I believe that for many of us, we are blessed to be able to work from home and the need for social distancing will only produce minor disruptions in our life with most spending time watching Netflix and catching up on family time. But for the majority of those that were living pay check to pay check, they are unable to do so. The closure of shops and the layoff of workers removed them from their access to essentials and work that they otherwise depended on greatly. The greedy attitudes of the hoarders cleared the shelves from these people who actually needed them.
These people who are less fortunate may no longer know where their next meal will come from and it saddens me that at this time of crisis, many people are thinking about themselves.
Even though we may have to abide by social distancing and stay at home, it does not discount us from the fact that we are a community and as a community, we need to be empathetic to those that are less fortunate. We need to put in the resources that we have and provide help to those that actually needed it.
I’m guilty of the fact that I complain of boredom instead of using this time that I have to help those in need. I believe that I can use the time to bring smiles to people’s faces. I believe that I should do my part to bring the morale up.
Let us do the small things that can make people happy in this time of need. InsyaAllah.
