Suddenly – A Short Message1 min read
Suddenly, we slept in one world and woke up in another. Disney has no more magic and Paris is no longer romantic.
Suddenly, in New York everyone sleeps. And the Great Wall of China is no longer a fortress.
Suddenly, hugs and kisses become weapons. Holding hands and walking the parks become outlawed.
Suddenly, not visiting aging parents and grandparents becomes an “act of love”. Suddenly, our bombs and machine guns, our tanks and artilleries begin to gather dust.
Suddenly, we realized that Gods don’t have power. And that money has no value when it can’t even buy you toilet paper.
Suddenly, we have been put back in our place by the hands of the universe.
And we’ve been made aware how vulnerably “human” we truly are, when faced with a microbe so powerfully inhumane.
