From the Editor: We're in this together

Only two weeks ago, parents were planning what to do with their children as spring break and early release arrived, stores were stocking Easter supplies and the city was concerned about street lights.

Today, many in our community are out of a job, schools have been closed, colleges are holding online only classes, stores are rationing supplies and words like quarantine, social distancing and virus are now part of our daily vocabulary. In the last week, our world has turned upside down but that doesn't mean our commitment to each other needs to.

The coronavirus is a grave concern to society. Our local, state and federal governments are addressing the virus in ways that seem best for them. As Americans, we have been asked to use social distancing and hand-washing to help combat this virus. This seems to be the least we can do. It is important to follow guidelines that have been put in place to help protect us and those we love. Is it comfortable? No. Is it frightening? Yes. Are we alone? No.

Right now we may not fully grasp why this is happening but we can remember that we are not alone. While spending time with your loved ones and friends may not be an option right now, it is important to remember that we can fight this together — as a community and as a human race.
