These difficult times have brought us connected to each other, to become stronger. But we shall believe, the sun will rise again.”
|Welcoming May, counting weeks until we celebrate Eid Mubarak!|
This year’s Eid will be very different for some of our friends. There will be no joyful celebration of Eid Mubarak at home with their family. Though it’s hard, it is the right thing to do right now. That’s what one of our friends, Fauzan, tries to tell us in his story “I Won’t Be Home for Eid”
“…we need to think and act as if the virus has been exposed to us. We can start by asking ourselves: “What if I am a carrier? Would it be dangerous for people back home?” “
His story invites us to reflect upon ourselves, it’s not just about our contribution to society at times like these. It is also to remind us that whatever we do impact others. We need to be aware of our decisions. In the end, we will end up with our own actions. We reap what we sow. We get what we give. What goes around, comes around.
