In India, some Hindus believe that drinking cow urine and applying cow dung to the body will heal all ailments, including Corona.
A few people from other faiths think it is funny. As a pluralist, it is my sincere suggestion to look into their own faith for some of their beliefs and stop denigrating other’s religions. Every tradition has such beliefs, including yours. If you cannot find it, write to us, we will be happy to do the research and share such views in your faith.
Most everything in life is about a belief; we need to be respectful of others’ beliefs and resist the temptations to ridicule it. There is nothing wrong with one’s belief: As long as they practice their belief without imposing on others, what is your problem?
I believe almost everyone is fully aware of the precautions to take with Corona. Washing hands, cleaning your cell phone surface, and a whole lot more.
During 1916 and1918, millions died around the world with the influenza epidemic. A majority of my family members were laid to rest during that period. In my family, the individuals left were my grandma, my father (2 years old then), my aunt, great uncle and aunt, and their son and daughter. Now, Corona is swallowing lives; however, in 1918, we did not have medicine for many diseases. Thanks to the progress we have made, we are finding cures as soon as a new virus emerges. Our scientists will find a cure for it. Meanwhile, we will lose many loved ones among all of us.
May God help us. Who knows who goes when? My suggestion is for everyone to seek forgiveness and forgive others and be ready to go in peace with a clean slate and sans-anxieties. May we all have empathy for others.
