Covid19 affects people of all ages, genders, races, classes and nationalities. There isn’t total equality in how the virus impacts us, but no identity group is being spared its influence. Locally, nationally and internationally, we must unite in our humanity and reach out to one another, and not perpetuate the divisions so common today.
We are in this together, and simple empathy must drive us to embrace others, no matter what their social, racial or gender identity. In the Covid19 crisis, as in so many other global matters, we cannot survive if we only look after those in our own circle or those who are like us.
Covid19 is giving us the opportunity to show acts of individual kindness and to act out of concern for society as a whole. Look around you, everywhere there are people who, like you are struggling because of the pandemic. Help where you can and don’t look down on anybody.
