Consider this a note of deep respect and appreciation to all those on the front lines fighting this coronavirus threat:
And an equally big note of appreciation to thoughtful neighbors everywhere who are sharing their supplies with others, offering to shop for them, and checking on them to make sure they are okay.

The situation is redolent of the ubiquitous patriotism and sense of unity I recall from WW II. There was something to it. I recall victory gardens and a lack of griping despite rationing. It would be nice to recover some of that!
Indeed it would. All the “me first,” hoarding, and price gouging is very disheartening. I like to think that this nation is better than that.
Everything here is clicking into hurricane mentality mode – people far more considerate than ordinary…most people that is.
With everything closed, and no traffic, the birds on early morning walks have never sounded better. Take care!
So glad I’m not there, worrying about hurricanes, or back in Oklahoma, worrying about tornados. The threat of coronavirus is plenty for me to deal with.
You take care, too!
Despite the problems of those places, they taught valuable lesson we take with us. We’ll survive!
That’s the plan, anyway.
Reblogged this on Me In The Middle and commented:
So many people who are stepping up so we can carry on. Pied Type’s another blog I’ve been following since 2015. The message of the cartoon ~ Don’t judge a person that you see with two carts filled with toilet paper. Their intention might be way different than you’re labeling them with.
Hang in there! Stay well!
I appreciate the reblog, but I’m afraid my interpretation of the second cartoon is not as generous as yours.
Yes, I thought of that too! The first cartoon (hoarding? or picking up for sharing?) The second cartoon (generously sharing what we have with a neighbor). What’s your thoughts on it?
I had thought of it as a hoarder. But I suppose it’s possible they were picking up supplies for other people.
I read where someone who was picking up a supply for a nursing home/assisted living was portrayed as a hoarder on Facebook. 🙁
I would expect someone like that to be driving a marked vehicle of some kind, but maybe not if it was a community volunteer.
Crazy Times!! Take care of yourself (and others)
And you do the same! Stay well.
