This crisis will pass as all others before

Σκεπτόμενη Αθηνά – Atenea pensativa [c. 460 a. C. – Μουσείο Ακρόπολης – Museo de la Acrópolis – Atenas]

We all know by now that the main virtues for survival is solidarity and confidence. We forget it too often. We start looking for scapegoats, easy answers and quick fixes. It would be a great pity if out of this crisis emerge new «strong leaders» and irrational beliefs. We all must work so that will not happen. This is the main task for us now. To save our society and its values. This crisis will pass as all others before.
