Since the outbreak of the coronavirus in this country, people have begun buying up food up in high quantities without regard for their fellow man. Store shelves are becoming bare because of irrational fear, causing others to suffer.

Even baby formula is becoming scarce. I never thought I would see the day we would be panicking because of a health issue. It is like a third world socialistic state. We need to remember who we are and what made us great.

Be considerate and buy what you need for your family, but don’t wipe out shelves or fight over items and don’t panic. Most of all, pray for our nation and leaders who are trying to keep us safe.

Call an elderly family member or neighbor who can’t get out to shop and see if there is anything you can do for them. Be kind and thoughtful of others. The sooner we realize we’re in this together, the quicker we will recover in the greatest most blessed nation in the world.
