CoronaVirus: Our Heroic Chinese Colleagues, Brothers, & Sisters

Editor’s Note:

The following pictures are very poignant and hard hitting.  They are of us- people- the Chinese people- our brothers and sisters.  What I see when I look at these images is not panic or fear, it is a resolute and concise determination to confront our fear and defeat not an unknown enemy– rather another disease that tries to slap us down- but will never defeat our human will to stand up and survive.  It’s what we do.

Our world is too small, our borders too porous to stop an unseen and microscopically opportunistic organism.  No nation stands alone here is really what I am trying to say.

China- We salute your intrepid ingenuity and bravery!

Look at the pictures below- and maybe we can learn from our Chinese Colleagues, Brothers, & Sisters.

God Bless and God Speed 🙂

We may all need to start wearing masks ?

I hope Not
