Corona and My Life

Hi,

My name is Halima Saighani. I am 22 years old and living in Kabul, Afghanistan. Since I was a teenager my parents always told me stories about the changes that happened in my homeland. Fights, wars, bomb blasts and so many other tragedies that people were facing through the time. Now, something else is happening which is called the non-controllable. I will shortly tell you about the non-controllable’s mechanisms, and then its good and bad effects in my life.

There are certain questions in my mind that I need to sort it out and have a solid response to it. This is 2020 and we are facing the non-controllable virus which is called as the “CORONA”. As a future nurse I know the mechanism of how a virus works, how it spreads, and how it is cured. However, the medical field is not able to control it or cure it properly. Viruses are attacking the DNA and RNA in our cells, which is why we cannot give a medicine which is for killing the virus. If the virus is killed then your DNA and RNA is also killed. This is the reality of viruses that affect humans. Every virus in the world has a cycle which is started and ended, but the “CORONA” is a never Ending virus.

I have not seen a human to be caged for this long of a time.

The globe is quarantined for it, why? Because if we stay home we are healthy. I have not seen a human to be caged for this long of a time. Personally for me it is like staying in a cage just like before. Long time ago I was being caged in house because of the society and now because of a VIRUS. It affected every single person, not only me. We cannot go to our schools and institutions for our studies; we cannot go to work even, because we all will be interacting with people. Every single female is already going through a lot, but the life nowadays for everyone is limited.

On the other hand, we can learn a lot of good things too from the quarantined life we have. I learned the following values from the quarantined life:

  • Value of health
  • Freedom
  • Cleanliness
  • Family
  • Value of Your Homeland

Last, I want to declare that this virus is sent by our creator to test us. Therefore, we have to take the chance in a way to understand ourselves better than before, deeply, and clean the soul and the body. I think that is where everyone wants to be forever.
