Businesses Are Closed But Our Hearts Are Open
For the last couple of months, like a monster, the Coronavirus has attacked the United States and the world causing billions of people to suffer from its damage that has never been seen before.
But when you watch on television and other news media, we still have the leaders of many countries arguing about who is to blame for the virus? WHO and the White House have now attacked each other. While we may not understand all the argument for the blame and how this will benefit citizens, small business men and women have already suffered and have closed their doors.
Today most countries have already shut down. Last week in the U.S. we had more than 7 million people file claims for unemployment. The lines at the food banks are getting longer and kids are staying home with their parents who are not getting a paycheck. How can they even survive? Suddenly, we feel like we are living in a third world country and not in the number one super power in the world.
In the meantime, we’ve seen millions of selfless volunteers who have gone to different cities including New York to help in the community centers. They are still feeding the many hungry every day now. Amateur musicians sing loudly at nearby senior homes and on the streets in an effort to comfort the lonely seniors.
Even though we are facing serious social and economic challenges, our Great Nation with its great citizens will definitely overcome and prevail.
God bless America.
