Lessons from the Pandemic - "The Great Realisation"
"...we all preferred the world we found, to the one we left behind..."
Recently, in the midst of so much bad news, we have had the good fortune to discover perhaps one of the greatest fairy tales of all time. And as it turns out, much of the fairy tale is true, and is unfolding in front of our eyes in real time.
New Zealand born poet Tomos Roberts, who is just 26 and now resides in Great Britain, has produced precisely 4 minutes of sublime and heartwarming perspective to the global pandemic. As of this writing, this little piece has been viewed over 40 million times; for very good reason. Also, it should be noted that Tomos' mother is a midwife, and babies are still being born. His sister is a doctor and has been treating covid-19 patients near London, and his father is an epidemiologist. In the United Kingdom, they have called doctors back into hospitals, so his father is back serving in a hospital setting.
And so, we give you Tomo's Roberts "The Great Realization" - with our sincere hope that you will be given hope and courage for the days ahead.
