The president of Hungarian Large Families Association – NOE, Katalin Kardosné Gyurkó, has shared her thoughts in an interview (vasarnap.hu) on the effects of coronavirus threat on our lives, on the power of faith and last but not least on the importance of family.
The most relevant issue is to keep in mind that this is neither a film, nor a play but reality itself happening to us and everyone around us.
“We should realise that this is about our lives and the lives of the ones we deeply love. Anything else could result from this serious recognition, otherwise we lose the possibility to survive. This true recognition is the only one that counts” – she says.
Families are at home, family members are in constant close contact with one another. The importance of family is powerfully perceived this way. Friends and other acquaintances can only be contacted online. However relevant it is to keep in touch it is the family that can give us EVERYTHING significant: security, friendship, love and care. This is not just a slogan as some might have thought, but reality itself that unfolds now in front of our eyes.
The president of NOE claims that the same goes for the community of our nation. “The common goal is vital for all of us. We can only face the crisis by cooperation and by following the necessary safety measures to survive the coronavirus threat with the least possible losses. Besides family and the nation, faith is there in our lives with all its mighty power.”
