It's not easy to think of it as a lesson. Yet, it is a lesson we have to take. All of us at the same time all over the world are taking the lesson.
One of the possible outcomes after overcoming this pandemic is that we are one, that it's stupid to fight each other. Everything looks trivial compare to this pandemic. Everything will be reevaluated after this pandemic.
Probably, people will be going back to their old way of thinking once this pandemic subsides. Because our thoughts are habitual, automatic most of the time. However, if we learn something from this pandemic, we can change our thoughts and then behaviors. "We are one." is the basic idea.
The same thing applies to ourselves. This pandemic reveals me. It may disappoint me. It may encourage me. Whichever, I can benefit from it as now I see me clearer.
As John points out, our mind is a storyteller. Your job is to make your mind tell a story you want to hear.
