Global Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic tests human capacities

COVID-19, the novel coronavirus, is a crisis that demands we come together now as a global community (not at 350ppm or after the next great flood, but now); when we are indiscriminately threatened – rich or poor, black or white, Middle Eastern or Asian or Mexican or American. Living on this large ship, Earth, has always been a process of grasping at straws. It’s just a question of how we respond to the severity and the immediacy of the need to help and care for each other that determines how successful we will be keeping the ship afloat and the passengers both safe and peaceful. It’s not a question of who’s got more money. It’s not a question of who has more bombs. It’s an elemental question of how much capacity we have to muster our compassion, sympathy, generosity, humanity.    ~ cjzurcher
