I PROTEST

  1. The first layer is the one that applies to me. I cannot hug my grandchildren. I cannot go to worship with my brothers and sisters at church. I have toe be wary of shopping for essentials since my age puts me in a high risk category. But at the end of the day, these are inconveniences.
  2. A greater hardship is experienced by those who have lost their jobs because of the shut down. There are some who are really sweating out their ability to make a rent or mortgage payment or a car payment or a grocery bill. Small businesses are on the brink of failure.There is a lot of anxiety among those who are really struggling financially.
  3. The ones who are hardest hit by the storm are the ones who are sick and dying and their families. Many people have died alone because their families were not allowed to visit. There are a lot of broken hearts out there.
