I can’t help but wonder what the state of our country would be under different leadership.
Would people still be filled with fear?
Maybe there would still be toilet paper, paper towels, and tissues on store shelves.
Would people follow directives for social distancing to flatten the curve?
Maybe the public would know that this is not a vacation and stay home voluntarily.
Would schools have closed for shorter periods of time?
Maybe we could have learned from China, Italy, and Iran and gotten ahead instead of behind.
Our lives are drastically different, and yet we are still a country divided.
Maybe we need to be thankful for local leaders who have had to take ahold of the reigns and make tough decisions for the greater good.
Thank you for showing up. For making the tough calls. For trying to rally your constituents.
Someone needed to step in and be a real leader.
