Surviving the Pandemic: Resilience and Hope

How resilient can we be when faced with tough challenges such as the pandemic?

Several stories of resilience and hope inspire us day by day for those who continue to face their greatest battle. It's when people have the fighting spirit and the will to live that makes them a survivor. They survive and thrive.

To be a survivor of this pandemic isn't about social and economic status. It's not about the healthiest body and the highest intelligence. To be a survivor is about our resilience to different struggles and miseries. It's about faith and hope amidst difficulty and sorrow. 

When life presents a bitter taste of suffering, then no one is spared. We all share the same fears, doubts, and uncertainties. We share daily life struggles and negative emotions.

But until when shall we suffer? Until when shall we continue to fight? Until when shall we survive? 

This pandemic makes us find time to ponder on our life. If we have limited time to live and survive, how can we live our best life? If we are going to die tomorrow, what are the good things we can do today?
