Welcome to our new mini series on positive words. We will start with the last letter of the alphabet, that is we will begin with positive words that start with z. Why do we publish this now? Because even after one whole year, the corona pandemic is still a threat for many of us. And many people suffer badly. Some have been infected and are still struggling with health issues. Others lost their loved ones to covid. Many people lost their jobs or have not enough income anymore to make ends meet. And the vast majority suffers from being isolated.

And while in the beginning of the crisis there was much solidarity and a general feeling of “we will overcome this together,” the tone in press, media and online has become far less friendly. It’s not so much “how can we help each other” anymore. Instead there is much more of “who’s to blame, who made which mistakes?”
