There are many reasons why China has existed for more than 5,000 years. These same reasons are why China will overcome this current crisis with the coronavirus.

During this critical time, the Chinese leaders have exerted massive efforts and financial resources to overcome it. The building of two hospitals in just 10 days. The thousands of healthcare professionals that have been sent to Wuhan. The cooperation of the World Health Organization. The shutdown of much of the province of Hubei. Even here in Henan where I live, I have seen the quick and highly effective actions of the government. I translate the messages that I receive from them every day and know that they are doing everything that they must do to kindly, lovingly and compassionately care for the welfare of their citizens.

I'm sorry that this latest crisis has arisen. However, I am happy to be here at this time. I had the chance the leave and go back to America. I considered the message that I'd be sending to my students. I came here to help them make their lives better. I couldn't run away when things got bad. I chose to stay and endure until this is resolved.

China is amazing! Its people are amazing. Its leaders are amazing. They are heroes in my heart and mind. I'm here to say “jiayou”!I'm so happy to be here and suffer through this with the students and people that I came here to serve.

We will win this war against this enemy virus. China will overcome and be stronger than before.

Michael Murphy is a professional educator, an educational consultant, an author. He lives in Zhengzhou, Henan province.
