Times are tough...

The pandemic has taken it's toll on every single person around the world. With all the unknowns, no one knows just how much worse it will get. Emotionally we all have been affected. But there are many people who the financial toll from the businesses being shutdown is hard to endure. The longer the quarantines go on the more people that will be devastated financially and emotionally. Just the other day when we entered phase one to reopen businesses, we excitedly headed to our favorite restaurant. The owner had worked at our local restaurant and had served us for over a decade before finally opening his own restraunt in the next town. When we got there instead of a sign that said closed for now due to covid19 like we had seen for the past two months, was a sign that said OUT OF BUSINESS. His hard work, his hope, his dreams and his livelyhood was GONE. The reality that all your hard work means nothing if you can't work, is another way that covid19 is a silent disease that is spreading. There is going to be a lot of people who need their community's support to recover from the affects of the pandemic. Whenever, wherever, however, to whomever you can please do what you can to help. If it was you I am sure you would hope that someone would help you. Be kind to everyone you meet because you have no idea what they may be facing.
