Now the world is trapped in a box full of fears and repeated surprises. The problem is everyone is looking for a way out of this box. We are now living in an almost interrupted time full of scattered ideas. Our mouths are closed, our noses are closed and even our doors are closed. The only thing liberating us is our imagination. Imagination can swing between two worlds; a closed world inside a box and another world, the unknown future that carries fears. This virus itself is still unknown, both to the general public as well as scientists themselves. In the end, we must choose to be hopeful that we will pass through this experience despite all the losses we face, whether material, moral or psychological. I believe a new beginning and a new life will emerge in time, and I wish for safety, security and love for the whole world.
