I am grateful for the essential workers who are quickly becoming heroes during this insane time. I hope the nation’s deep reverence for delivery people, grocery store workers, medical professionals, and others lasts beyond this period and leads to lasting changes in the way this country compensates and values these people.
Today, I had the ability to simply drive to the store and pick up groceries that were collected for me and brought to my car. What a blessing. I got to wear the mask Mandy made for me on the trip to do my small part to ensure the safety of the people who helped me today.
