Tình yêu huyền diệu

Chào các bạn,

Nói đến tình yêu huyền diệu thì có lẽ các bạn đều đồng ý. Mọi chúng ta đều đã nghe mọi triết gia, đạo gia, thi nhân, nghệ sĩ, nhà văn, họa sĩ, kịch sĩ, nhạc sĩ… nói và viết về tình yêu huyền diệu cả bao nhiêu ngàn năm rồi. Và loài người chúng ta sẽ tiếp tục ca bản “tình yêu huyền diệu” vài ngàn năm nữa. Khi nào thì chúng ta chán nhỉ? Chắc là chẳng chán bao giờ, vì… tình yêu thật là huyền diệu. Dù đã nghe nhiều, chúng ta vẫn luôn ngạc nhiên, thích thú, và sửng sốt mỗi khi chính mình thấy được một phép lạ của tình yêu. Và nếu bạn đang yêu, thì mỗi ngày là một chuỗi phép lạ như thế, chẳng chỉ là một hai phép lạ. Đủ để biến bạn thành thi nhân tầm cỡ nếu bạn muốn làm thơ tình (dù hiện thời bạn chỉ đang làm thơ con cóc, nhưng tình yêu sẽ biến thơ bạn từ con cóc thành chim phượng chỉ trong một thời gian ngắn thôi. Đã nói “Tình yêu huyền diệu mà”). Đọc tiếp Tình yêu huyền diệu

US investigates possibility of Covid-19 spread originating in Chinese lab

(CNN)US intelligence and national security officials say the United States government is looking into the possibility that the novel coronavirus spread from a Chinese laboratory rather than a market, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter who caution it is premature to draw any conclusions.

The theory is one of multiple being pursued by investigators as they attempt to determine the origin of the coronavirus that has resulted in a pandemic and killed hundreds of thousands. The US does not believe the virus was associated with bioweapons research and the sources indicated there is currently no indication the virus was man-made. Officials noted that the intelligence community is also exploring a range of other theories regarding the origination of the virus, as would typically be the case for high-profile incidents, according to an intelligence source.The theory has been pushed by supporters of the President, including some congressional Republicans, who are eager to deflect criticisms of Trump’s handling of the pandemic.
