The coronavirus has taken a lot from the entire globe in more ways than we could have ever imagined, however, there is light even in the darkest of places.
When the coronavirus pandemic broke out, the whole world went into a panic and disappear – it was something we had only ever seen on movies.
Briefly.co.za reached out to our readers, asking them to find the silver lining in this global crisis.
While schools have close, adult beverages and cigarettes are not being sold, incomes have been lost and life is no longer how we knew it, the beautiful people of Mzansi have managed to find some positives out of it all.
Posing the question on our Facebook page, readers had the opportunity to share their positive coronavirus stories. It is so important to find good, even in the worst of times.
Some have managed to quit smoking, others finally found the time to do those things they never had to time do, like exercise or fix something around the house, but the most beautiful thing that has been taken from all of this is that we are stronger together than we are apart.
Faith in humanity has definitely been restored. The amount of kindness that has flowed through the globe during this pandemic is what is getting us all through.
Here are just some of the beautiful positive posts from our reader:
@Neo G Letshwiti: “I have quit smoking and since been on a 3-week strict exercise routine. People are much more willing to help each other out during these tough times and families have strengthened their bonds.”
@Mokgadi Sekati: “Love has spread on various areas giving food parcels. Communications in some families become stronger, Ubuntu has been diversified among us as Nation. Peace no more violence as before.”
@Lekgalwa Jacob Nkoana: “Saving my hard-earned money.”
@Athi Dyosi S'thathu: “The positive things that I have seen is the big heart that people have for other people especially for the poor and may God bless those who have helped the poor in this pandemic. And in God's name, this pandemic will soon be the thing of the past. Thank you.”
@Haroon Jafari: “It’s become apparent which people are important in society, not your celebrities and such but your essential services providers that people took for granted. Hope they will be appreciated even after the pandemic.”
@Francinah Phetla: “Mabopane highway is accident-free since Lockdown”
