Is COVID the End of Humankind?

No, it is not! For it is in our genes to adapt and overcome. This pandemic brought the whole world to a standstill and locked everyone in the confinement of their homes.

But look at us--we still made things happen inside our houses.

Restaurants are closed but our creativity and eagerness to learn opened up and brought bold flavors into the kitchen. From driving miles away for your cravings, everyone followed and even made their own recipes 'til the masterpiece is on the plate. (I am pretty sure everyone knows how to bake a cake by now.)

Educational institutions are closed but a world of online courses unfurled at our fingertips. As Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam said, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear."

Places of worship are closed but the prayers from all over the globe are louder than ever.

Gyms are closed but the desire to stay fit and healthy got everyone to do workouts in their living rooms. Fitness became an important goal for most of us.

So you see, no matter how unprecedented and deeply saddening this pandemic is, humankind will survive--but will humanity? Time will tell.
