COVID-19 Video blog update – Feedback in Portuguese and English on 3 weeks of isolation by Josh Folgado

I have been self-isolating in Lisbon, Portugal, for the past 3 weeks or more. This video blog shares some experiences and effects from these past 3 weeks.

I was born in Africa, African at heart, thought I had more experience in dealing with the future that all of us are dealing with at the moment, how wrong I was.

Right now we are all brothers and sisters, we are almost 4 billion people in lockdown, when we leave this lockdown we wont be the same people after and before, the world, the jobs, the professions, how we will survive, what will be allowed, everything around us will change.

Today a friend, Carla, gave me something as simple as a hug.

I didnt even know how to handle it, something so simple, so pure, reminded me that I was not as strong as I thought, we all need that closeness to keep us human.

And its by being human that we will be able to survive and grow in this world we all know and feel its well on its way…

We’ll need to learn to LOVE AGAIN…

…discover what really has value… it wont be our clothing, fancy shoes, expensive cars, showing off to others… that is meaningless…
