Every single one of us counts – By Celestine Chime

The world is at a standstill and all that echoes in my ears are the words written in the famous diary of Anne Frank- the Jewish teenager who went into hiding during the holocaust. She wrote the quote “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

The current pandemic which has halted the activities of humans- both economic and social, echoes an important message. The message is that as people, we are often caught up in the rat race of life and tend to forget one of the most important parts of our existence on earth, which is caring for one another and the earth at large.

The pandemic has made us realize that every single one of us, irrespective of our position and our location is needed. All we have in this life is one another and we need to “make the world a better place” as Michael Jackson sang in his song “Heal the world” released in 1991.

When this pandemic is over let’s not hesitate in helping each other in whichever way we can and with whatever resources we can harness. Let us “make it a better place, for you and for me and the entire human race”.
