     President Trump designated last Sunday, March 15, a National Day of Prayer for everyone in the path of COVID-19.
     Here, we share our prayers for you.
     If there is one thing apparent as the corona pandemic rampages around our planet, it is that when it comes to the next chapter in all of our lives, we will all need to depend on each other, like it or not.
     The coronavirus has delivered an important lesson for all of us. Mankind does not get a free pass from suffering, and there is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
     When you think about it, there are always any number of challenges to us on Earth, but which challenges can or should we embrace?
     Sitting here in America, a month ago our hearts went out to the tens of millions of brave people in China suffering terribly under an unjust gangster regime as COVID-19 mowed down people without mercy in Wuhan & Hubei Province, an area roughly the size of France.
     The tears had not even dried when Japan, Korea, and Italy were struck by the virus and the rest of Europe went on high alert.
     Now as the pandemic tsunami closes in on the Americas, we see that even the giant barrier of oceans cannot protect us from the fate of the rest of the world
     Right now, the most powerful nation in the history of the world is in total lockdown, with business at a complete standstill while the government grapples with next steps.
     Our beloved airline industry has been brought to its knees financially, with airlines offering many pilots and other employees unpaid leave and early retirement.
     The change in lives and fortunes is both sudden and draconian.
     The transition from hero to zero occurred in a matter of weeks.
     No doubt there will be many opinions advanced as to what we should do next.
     We don’t pretend to have the answers, but we are dedicated to the idea that the best of who we are and what we can be as an air cargo industry is in your hands dear reader.
     As someone who is privileged to have been born and raised in the United States of America and later had the honor to serve my country as a soldier during the Vietnam War, today, a half a century later, I recall how a generation of millions of Americans from Haight-Ashbury to New York helped bring that war to an end.

The World United

     Listening to the music recorded around the world is a prayer, something important to share at this time.
     We can only wish that the music of The World United will be received in the hopeful spirit in which it was recorded.
     Right now, our prayer is to deliver comfort and hope to people suffering during this particularly tough and tragic time.
     If you have any words you’d like to share, any of your own playlists you’d like us to help distribute, or other content that has helped you navigate this difficult time, please share them with us. Air Cargo News FlyingTypers hopes to be like an online hearth for our cargo family. Gather around—it’s less lonely here.
