You addressed it specifically to everyone on the board. I don't judge you or begrudge you anything for your theological beliefs. If those beliefs help you to be a better person to your fellow man. I'm all for it.

And again, I am happy to hear that your family members recovered. And I agree with you this crisis highlights how selfish and apathetic people have become towards one another. If there is a silver lining maybe it's that they were afflicted relatively early while hospital capacities and capabilities are still able to cope. I worry many thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, will not be able to receive adequate care sooner rather than later.

Crystal, I addressed it to those who have read my profile. If you have read it for yourself, you would have seen that is says, Interests: Christianity. When I speak on terms such as these, my faith is always going to be priority. There is nothing theological about my belief. My belief has been documented my multiple nations over the past 2020 years. I am glad you are all for it!

Thank you for acknowledging my families distress. Itís been rough, to say the least.

You are right, people have been selfish, me included. But now I have a chance to realize my flaws.

Crystal, I see you as an xoutpost friend and wouldnít think twice to help you out. Always remember that.

Your friend,

Happy

Sending out all warm feeling for all those caught up in the crisis. Here in Wash DC the political posturing is at the 100% level. All are hoping to put some wind back into the election circus. They pander to the press so don't take everything you see on TV as fact.
Think of it as just preening for the show.
Meanwhile be cautious, use prudent procedures and stay healthy for your loved ones who need you around. For your loved ones, hold them close!

Well, to add to the drama, Charlotte has now issued a stay at home order effective Thursday 8:00 AM. We are now essentially on lock down for 3 weeks. My wife works at Target so we already have our papers issued to her by Target Corp. identifying her as essential personnel.

Never in my life would I have ever thought I would need movement authorization papers to present to LE.

https://www.charlotteobserver.com/ne...241468111.html

Starting at 8 a.m. Thursday, the 1.1 million residents of Mecklenburg County largely must stay in their homes except for going to grocery and drug stores, making medical appointments and exercising. People can still get restaurant to-go food and deliveries, in keeping with statewide restrictions already in place.

Those whose work is deemed essential in the order can continue to travel to and from their jobs. Violating the order can be a misdemeanor.

A little over reaction from the County and City officials. Can't wait to see that tested in the courts.

Yep, Houston goes on lock down tonight at midnight. Now we canít just go shopping at the grocery store, it has to be one by one.

Sheesh.. I am trying not to get worn out with this.

How do you mean one by one. There is a line outside and they meter you in? Seems like the stores would be better off doing "shop at home".

Stay safe all. We are still very much on the upswing (beginning no less) of the curve. There is no good solution possible by government. All solutions or plans are going to hurt either the population or the economy.

I keep trying to convince my parents to stay the hell home and I'll deliver stuff to them because they aren't diligent about distancing and sanitizing. I'm sure we are all wrestling with different dilemmas. I know I'm much more sensitive and short lately, much to the dismay of my kids. Normally I play with them a lot and of course now I am my daughter's formal teacher so things are changing for them in ways that make me question myself from time to time.

Sorry for rambling but we all need to be aware we're in this together regardless of political, religious, or other beliefs. Again, stay safe and protect your loved ones.

Well said brother.

Novel Coronavirus has no religious or political affiliation. It will affect us all and we are all at risk.

We need to keep our forum family together.
