India, here's a reminder.
We'll make it through this.
If you're looking for a sign, this is it.
India will breathe again.
And to all those who lost someone,
Who broke down trying to arrange for life support for someone,
Who are grieving,
I say this to you
We're in this together
Your grief is valid
Your concern is valid
Whatever you are feeling right now is valid
Take care of yourself
Give yourself time to heal
Give yourself the space to heal.
And to the youth who've taken up the charge
Who've provided hope, and so much more to complete strangers
Who have stretched out a hand of help
Who have started the biggest revolution this country has ever seen,
I say this to you, India will survive this
So hold on, will you?
With every phone call you make to verify leads,
With every effort, you put in to make sure that someone thousands of miles away
Does not stop breathing
You're ensuring India makes it through this
And it will, you know?
People of my country
We’re grieving today, we’re struggling
But if there’s anything to be learnt from our history, our legacy
It’s that we survive
We make it through storms and tempests
And we’ll make it through this one too
I swear to you, we will
So hold on with me, will you?
