We have been confined at home for days now with a lot of uncertainty, worry, anguish and fear for the unfortunate situation created by this Pandemic that we are all suffering.
We did not want to make any publication to promote Dolfie as it would be absurd given the circumstances…who could care less now…Needless to say that Coronavirus is a great threat for our health as well as our economy. Countries total lockdown to fight the spread of the disease have frozen the economy, putting at risk our businesses and consequently our jobs. But that’s not important NOW. Taking care of our families and help each other is the best thing we can do for now.
We think this is a good opportunity to meditate and understand why all these epidemics are more and more frequent, and, above all, how it can be changed.
What can I do to change the world?
We are told that the Coronavirus originated in China. Others argue that it was created in a laboratory by the Americans to infect the Chinese in response to the commercial war … this news have only one objective: to create hatred and divide the population. The media is manipulated distorted for political and economic purposes by those who are in power.
It makes sense to believe that Epidemics have to do with modern globalization, urbanization and climate change. It´s directly caused by our greedy western lifestyle which is seriously damaging our Ecosystem with its perpetual demand for more and more resources. All over the world the habitat of animals is being destroyed to build our homes, our cities and make our own lives more comfortable. Every day we kill 345 million animals, 60000 million a year, which are massively raised and artificially fed to fatten them in record time, sacrificing them with painful unorthodox careless methods, only to meet demand.
It´s been long now since we have broken the delicate balance of our ecosystem on our home the planet.
The current unsustainable development model has led to an unprecedented environmental crisis. Epidemics are a clear sign of this devastation. The overexploitation of animals is the main originator from most of these diseases such as coronavirus, Ebola, Sars, Mers, avian flu, mad cows, swine flu, etc.
There is an urgent need for conservation strategies to protect all living things and our environment to prevent and reduce these serious problems.
These are difficult times for everyone. We need to take care of ourselves and those around us. There is always hope and hope has the power to transform the world for the better.
There is no doubt that we will beat the virus and hopefully it teaches the lesson that only together are we at our strongest, most alive and most human.
We want to thank all Public Health professionals for saving lives and all those who continue working so that we all have supply of food and basic goods. Thank you.
