As you are trying to self-distance and frantically buy supplies, I want you to think about the elderly people in your community and in your life. They are terrified. Many live on fixed incomes and had to wait to buy groceries. They need monthly medications and worry they can’t get them or will catch the virus if they venture out. You know, when people say this is an older person’s virus, that is not so, and even if that were true, can you imagine how they feel? Do their lives not matter because they are older? Our next president will be close to 80 years old, regardless of who is elected. The elderly deserve to live full, productive lives. You do not want a world without our older generation.
