War has always been the most horrific tragedy. But today, the coronavirus pandemic brings with it a greater fear. It does not take human lives using lethal weapons, but by an invisible virus. No matter how advanced medical science may be; so far neither the sharpest weapon nor the most advanced science could eliminate it. With these developments, men thought that they have surpassed God, only to discover that the advancement of technology and communications have left us confused and unable to think clearly.

 Hence, the pandemic must awaken us to the truth of the lowliness and frailty of human. As a meaningful Chinese saying goes “Those who obey God will prosper, while those who rebel die”.
