“As a father and a grandfather whose children and grandchild reside with me, this time of quarantine has been both a time of hardship and joy. My grandson is only two years old, three in June, but still so precious. His name is Lucas. He enjoys coming down the stairs first thing every morning, grabbing the T.V. remote from the coffee table near a couch that I have called my bed for the past two weeks, and saying, “Movie, bah bah?” It is the highlight of my morning! 

It a time for people to put aside Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and spend time with families, to unbury the old board games of Clue, Monopoly, and Mouse Trap. To go through every childhood movie that is on the shelf and watch them again as a family and to explore new ones on NETFLIX and Disney Pluss.

It is a time to pick up the mixing spoons from the drawers and make peanut butter cookies and homemade breads for the meal that is once again eaten at the table like at Thanksgiving. To teach the new generation that not everything has to be bought at the store to be eaten, that foods without preservatives are better than pre-made foods. It is a time to challenge ourselves to get our homework done, now online, even with being one of the few full-time employees working still, all the while remaining positive both morally and mentally. It is a time to finally work on the projects around the house that need to be done. Most of all it is a time of patience and caring for each other, a time of compassion and responsibility to our family, friends and community. It is a time to stay home and stay safe.”
