Civilizational heritage isn’t essential for a nation to rise. New Zealand is one of the youngest nations. Post act of terrorism, they captivated and charmed the word through their actions. They proved Epictetus right, “It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters”. We all were amazed and awestruck with response of New Zealand. Jacinda Ardern was there to lead and a vibrant nation was in sync to respond. The empathy, alacrity, passion and unity were par-excellence. What other nations take months and years to do NL did in moments, hours and days. No great game, no vices, no biases, no Islamofobia and no prejudices could hinder this great nation. The people and the leader were crystal clear and rock-solid in testing moments. Hithertofore, relatively less known Jacinda Arden has emerged as one of the best leaders the world has. At the same time the nation living ‘down and under’ has set standards for the world ‘up and above’. New Zealand has left great lessons for us to emulate.
