Heed warnings and don’t hoard

Since the turn of the last century, this world has survived a flu epidemic and World War I – at the same time. We survived the Great Depression during which President Roosevelt’s first inaugural speech, he said “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” We survived World War II, Korea, VietNam and the horrors of 9/11. In more recent memory locally, we survived a vicious ice storm and a horrible “500-year” flood. We will survive this mess too. But we must heed our government’s and health professionals’ warnings and keep our distance from each other and certainly not HUG friends we’ve not seen in a long time. That was, sadly, something I was horrified to see in Walnut Ridge last week. We simply cannot do it.

The supplies WILL be available. There is no reason to HOARD anything. What is the thinking behind buying hundreds of rolls of toilet paper at once? For goodness sake, where does one KEEP that much toilet paper anyway?
