After Brexit and the dividing of our nation as a result, I saw this horrendous pandemic not just as a near apocalypse but also as a potential way forward of uniting us against this unseen enemy. Humans standing strong together; helping and supporting one another; our country, nations, the world. Apart we would struggle to survive but united we can fight it. It’s stripped bare because nothing else matters but solidarity; high above the light shines through and the virus is no more. Hopefully lessons will be learned from this awful situation; what is really important and not forgotten. Do we really want to return to how it was?
