“O you who believe! Seek help in patience, and prayer. Indeed! God is with the patient. And call not those who are slain in the way of God ‘dead’. Nay, they are living, only you perceive it not. And surely We shall try (test) you with something of fear and hunger, and loss of wealth and lives and crops; but give glad tidings to the patient; who say, when a misfortune (disaster) strikes them: Indeed! We belong to God, and indeed! To Him we are returning. Such are they on whom are peace & blessings, and mercy from their Lord. Such are those who are the rightly guided.” The Holy Quran 2:153-157
Walid Ehssan (HearTist) latest art work dedicated to all the first responders.
Having conversation with my friends in healthcare made me realize how hard and scary it is for them to go to their job sites everyday knowing the virus can hit them anytime. Burning wood was the perfect idea for this unfortunate dream we are going through. There are 1000s of invisible first responders that are going through this experience every single day with the hope of normal life tomorrow. They are burning inside so we live a better life. Alicia Keys song (Good Job) matched perfectly with what I was trying to show through my art.
