Opportunity lies in every crisis
As we all are living in one the most fearful times in modern history, it is important to keep positive and try to look on the bright side of life and find the beauty surrounding us! Although it may be difficult to do, we must, in order to keep our sanity, health and positive nature about life, Let us be positive, Let us dream that this crisis will enable us to open our eyes a little. Let us dream that it will have opened many eyes to the need for more ethics and responsibility in the behavior of the world today.
What I’m seeing in this crisis we are all experiencing today, is an enormous amount of concern, help, donations, relief coming in many variations:
- Government relief in the form of money/cash to all U.S. citizens
- Financial Institutions (Banks) offering relief of financial responsibility in the form of auto and home loans
- Some of the largest and richest organizations in the World turning their attention to the needs of the U.S. citizens: Ford, GM, Tesla, FedEx, UPS, USPS, Bill Gates Foundation
- Food banks, Shelters, Testing available to those in need
It’s very comforting and Positive to see such effort by our country in a time of crisis and need! I am probably watching more television than usual because restaurants, bars, gyms are all closed, and with no sports on television, I find myself watching TV shows I normally don’t watch.
As fate would have it, I’m flipping through the channels this morning and my attention is captured by a pile of plastic bundled together in huge bails to be recycled! As I start to watch with more interest and enthusiasm, I felt a sense of contentment knowing there is a large effort to capture, recycle and make use of the wasted plastic generated by Humans for various useful purposes!
The T.V. program is called: Xploration Station, a science based program, covering all aspects of Science and Earth! Plastic is one of mankind’s most revolutionary inventions. It’s everywhere, in your home, in your car, in your clothes. It’s also fouling your environment. Host Chuck Pell visits the world of plastic recycling, where used plastic is converted into lumber, clothing, works of art, car parts and even homes. On the way to 2050, plastic garbage is the raw material of the future. Enjoy the video:
After watching this episode, I felt better about our future. Just like we are all coming together to help each other get through this global crisis, we will help make Earth a better place to live! I believe we will be a better Human Race because of Coronavirus!
