Day 43

Day 43 – Total confirmed cases in US: 965,933

Just as there is only one love, that takes many forms, so there is only one hate, and it takes just as many forms. It even convinces some people that it is a form of love, but the differences are deep and immediate.

Just as virtue is its own reward, a heart filled with hate is its own punishment.

While it is tempting to let hate tip our scales during these difficult days, let’s only hate ignorance and bigotry, not the people who possess them. After all, every one of us is ignorant of many things.

Maybe we should just get together (with proper social distancing) and feel alright…

One love
One heart
Let’s get together and feel alright

Hear the children crying
Hear the children crying
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel alright
Let’s get together and feel alright

Let them all pass, all their dirty remarks
There is one question I’d really love to ask
Is there a place for the hopeless sinners
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?

One love
One heart
Let’s get together and feel alright

So shall it be in the end
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel alright
Let’s get together and feel alright

Let’s get together to fight this Holy Armageddon
So when the Man come, there will be no no doom
Have pity on those whose chances grows thinner
There ain’t no hiding place from the Father of creation

One love
One heart
Let’s get together and feel alright

One love
One heart
Give thanks and praise to the lord and I will feel alright
Let’s get together and feel alright
Give thanks and praise to the lord and I will feel alright
