The current coronavirus pandemic has prompted me to wonder if anyone could explain to me what seems to me to be a dilemma.

Those of us who are religious pray to God, “the creator of all things, seen and unseen.” Did God create the coronavirus? If so, why? If not, who or what had the power to do so?

I’ll be 94 in October. I’ve lived through good and bad times in our nation’s history. The coronavirus pandemic ranks among the worst. However, a side effect which is somewhat beneficial is that it unites the country against a common enemy. That “enemy” may have been thrust upon us. Masks now hide people’s smiles, but friendliness can still be seen in their eyes.
