25 march – Tone Berg

It is already hinted that the time we stand in is a clear message to people on earth. Go to your room, stay there and think about what you have don? Typical conversation with a defiant 8 year old.

The virus attacks health care, workplaces, and our physical freedom. The virus moves through us, and every day new information are coming about where and how the virus strikes. It gives us tremendous collective responsibility.

Solidarity and compassion create sustainability we have never seen before. Vital socieal functions and health care, needs strict work conditions.
Solidarity provides social security and lubricates the social wheel and fight the Covid 19 virus.

Now let’s show that we C A N contribute to a fight the pandemic virus?

Lech Wałęsa received the Nobel Peace Prize for his solidarity work, established the Eastern Bloc’s first independent trade union, called “Solidarity.” The turnaround in Poland should occupy young people minds today. Especially the politically unconscious. I fear that too many of us take things for granted, even though most people live with good intentions for community and the country. Democracy is also threatened now, and most of all by capitalism. The very rich are little concerned about climate and the environment, ergo, capitalism overcomes democracy and most people. Simply put, but right now complexity and depth are not what we need.

I would like to mention this light and short, it does deserve the ink I use, everyone should understand. Cabin owners and those who still want to leave for Easter holiday must stop complaining about the ban, we have other worries no. In a global quarantine, it’s provoking that people still wants to to travel to their cabins, in this pandemic time.

Solidarity means the whole of sum, whole, togetherness, unity. All countries in cooperation with their system now need solidarity. For the first time in my lifetime, everyone on the planet is concerned and threatened by the same thing. What happens to the virus and how long will this last?

Health is a culturally conditioned concept that varies with culture, perceptions and history. “La familia” and the social and cultural structure of Italy, with close relationships. The closeness in Italy may explain some of the major contagion there. It is been terrible to follow the corona developments in Italy, we hope the outbreak will stop. Injury and disease prevention are important for a good life and good health. Now we have a time to listen collectively and do the same thing. That in itself will create security.


Mental health is about whether a person manages to use their cognitive and emotional skills to function in society and meet everyday demands. According to WHO, there is no official definition of mental health. Cultural differences, subjective judgments and competing theories influence how mental health should be defined. Still, most people agree that mental health and mental illness do not complement each other. In other words, the absence of mental illness will not necessarily be the same as having good mental health. One way of thinking about mental health can be to see how a person works in everyday life. Signals of good mental health are when the person manages to cope with normal amount of stress, maintain friendship and live an independent life and manage to get out of emotional “pitfalls”.

I feel stronger than my expectations, under the conditions we all face. I live in my house with my immediate family. Have a niece who will give birth during March. We are thinking of her, even though her husband is a doctor. Everything has changed. We chat and Skype with the US, Germany and Italy, and England. Everyone we know are healthy and quick. No one we know has lost their lives. There are quite a few in the world who have it. We must learn solidarity – now, and retain that knowledge when we passes the pandemic.

This is it, we must be brave and behave, then we brake the chain of spread.
