If there’s one unforeseen outcome from the COVID-19 outbreak, it’s the fact that people all over the world seem to be turning against each other.
Hand sanitizers? Forget about seeing those in stores for a long while as people selfishly hoard a lifetime supply of it for themselves.
But amidst the turmoil, it’s heartening to know that there is still goodness in this world:
