Why would a country experiencing an epidemic, not report to other countries
To save face, because they felt they could secretly control the spread.
Reluctance to mention the word, “death.”
Why is the willow tree weeping?
Sad for itself and its relatives for lack of protection and respect.
Why do you think you are never pleased with a photo of yourself?
Do you see or think of yourself as looking different?
This might be the way others see you all the time.
