Few of us had heard about Coronavirus in 2019. It turned this world upside-down, and we hope you and your loved ones pass through it safely and with the least hardship as possible.
Our aspirations are that we can return to some normalcy soon. But, for the time being quarantines, disinfectants, masks, social distancing, and myriad inconveniences and hardships loom ahead. The above photo was taken in the author's dining room as he was channel surfing.
We can overcome this if we work together. Alert: a public service message about the Coronavirus.
