After taking a walk around our neighborhood tonight with my family (which we haven’t done in quite a long time), I remembered a composition my daughter in law, Pauline, sent me.
It is apparently written by Chinese pastor to a brother in Christ in Istanbul. I am uncertain about the veracity and accuracy of the author’s information, but the composition is worth the read and will cause you to consider the author’s insights nonetheless.
The hustle and bustle of China finally quiets down, the restless society comes to a still, and the restless Chinese people gradually calm down.
The wild animals that were once held by humans in cages finally managed to keep humans in cages.
Humans finally lower their proud head and have begun to think quietly: Are we still the king of the earth?
Mankind finally feels the power of nature once again….
In the face of the threat of death, human beings have only begun to reflect seriously, only to realize that a lack of awe-inspiring social atmosphere will lead to more harm and more risks.
The greedy heart is being purified by the virus, and the mouth that loves to eat is being punished by the virus. The people who have been soaking in the bright red and green places all day have been driven home by the virus, saying…. “Go home!”
There are fewer and fewer people on the street, few cars on the road.
The air is getting fresher…. the haze is gone…. the sky is getting bluer…. the sun is getting brighter…. family lives are getting warmer, harmonious, and cordial. People’s hearts have become more and more calm.
People who haven’t read for years have picked up books at home. Parents and children who had no communication, couples who couldn’t speak a few words a year have opened up the conversation box. Children who do not know how to respect the elderly have begun to be filial.
The virus teaches human beings a vivid and profound lesson. It makes us understand awe. It also lets us know what is called “good times.”
It also makes us feel true love on earth. It makes us gradually fall in love with “Return to the Road.”
We really should be grateful for this “enemy.” We need such an enemy to give us a “reminder” and give us “empowerment.”
The virus will not leave so quickly. It needs to see the cultivation of human good habits. The virus will not continue to rage, because human love will gather more power to keep the virus away. Time will tell us everything. Time will also prove what is right.
The virus reminds us that THERE IS AN ALMIGHTY.
And humans are just humans.
