The world suddenly looks united in dealing with Coronavirus, at the same time our human values have been tested by a few acts of selfishness. Maybe it is a good time to remind ourselves about some basic core human values that are common to all of our beliefs. It is a good time to get rid of our fears and practice caring for each other in any way we can. We all are in it together. Be kind and care for the needs of others as if they are your family. We are all part of the human family and have been created by one Creator.
