In The Lockdown - To Lockdown or Not and Looking up at the sky
The sky is fascinating.
Looking up at the sky from my window, I saw this.
Such a beautiful cloud formation.
The sky always fills me with wonder.
On March 25th New Zealand went into total lockdown to fight the virus. Only essential services are operating.
There are different opinions on whether there should be a lockdown or not. The basis for that is the question of whether the cure is worse than the disease. There is some unease about the economy post lockdown.
My view is that right now the immediate issue is safeguarding the health of people. Yes there may be economic hardship post lockdown but life is more important than wealth.
I believe that the lockdown is the right path to follow. And perhaps sometime soon when things have improved, some more services could be opened up progressively. That will help economic recovery.
What are your thoughts? To lockdown or not?
Today's song captures the sentiment of facing this pandeminc together, of helping each other and of saving lives.
There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me.
I believe that this is a time the world needs to heed this call. So let's gracefully accept decisions of the lockdown and honour it. For we are saving our own lives.
