May Day in Corona Days

I would like to begin by wishing all a great weekend and "May" this be the turning point of the pandemic to a new and better times 🤞😊

May 1st was chosen to be International Workers' Day [1] to commemorate the 1886 Haymarket affair in Chicago In that year beginning on 1 May, there was a general strike for the eight-hour workday

The last few weeks, for some months, have been challenging as most of us were forced to close or downsize their businesses IAW Covid-19 pandemic restrictions.

Commemorating Labor Day this year fills Bitter Sweet.

Bitter as many of our fellow Colleagues and Friends are at home struggling to stay afloat.

Sweet as it is a good pause, which was not always possible in other times, to enables us to reflect first on how we did things and secondly allows us to do some soul searching and reflecting as to how can we emerge from this period in our lives stronger and better, both personalty and professionally.

"It's going to be OK" is an optimistic phrase commonly used this days, mainly to strengthen the Emergency Medical Teams and Supporting Systems but also to spread some optimism.

I believe it will not just be OK, when our lives resume a new normal, but rather

"It's going to be Great"

We should strive to be excellent and better people when we "get our lives back".

Applauding Solidarity in these tough times and Commemorating labor day is not enough.

It is the true face of our society and it is a shame it only "shows its face" in difficult times.

I believe we should be Better to each other, show Solidarity and Do Good all year long and whenever we can.

We are showing some signs of relief from this pandemic, in some countries more then others, but it looks a long way forward.

"Together we shall overcome "

Regretfully so, some Airlines and Aviation suppliers have already begun Administration towards filing for bankruptcy, however I truly hope and am crossing my fingers that much like like the phoenix, we will obtains new life by arising from the ashes of our predecessor [2]
