Lessons from Pandemia
Did it ever occur to us that the worldwide pandemic which we are experiencing may be one of God’s means of reducing the ever increasing worldwide population? From China which is refuted to be the most populated country in the world to India which follows China in terms of population the pandemia is reported to be on the rise. Both print and broadcast media reports also show that the same phenomenon is true in New York and other parts of the USA like Los Angeles, San Francisco and in the east coast. The Asia Pacific regions including the Philippines are among those in the list. Be that as it may, only God knows what is best for mankind and our faith in Him keeps us assured that we will always be in His warm embrace.
Reportedly, President Rodrigo R. Duterte delivered his address at the United Nations General Assembly sometime ago. It is unfortunate that no video coverage was shown for us to see how he fared in his address. We recall that years back then President Ferdinand E. Marcos also addressed the UN General Assembly and the entire Filipino nation was elated and in great pride to see the members of the General Assembly in standing ovation. Indeed, Marcos’ oratory just like that of the late Senator Raul Manglapus is incomparable.
For how long will this pandemia last? It would seem that not until the vaccine has been found the disease will linger on. Hopefully, the experimentation reportedly being conducted in China and Russia to discover the vaccine will find fruition. Not until then the pademia shall continue to be part of our daily lives.
