    Yes, it sucks. But you and your family are healthy. You are able to get food. You can go into your backyard.

    I have read a lot of stories, some historical fiction and some non-fiction related both related to WWII and what it was like for civilians, people in the concentration camps, others in hiding or in the resistance. Those novels make what we are going through seem like a walk in the park. We have food. We have gas. We are not sharing our homes with strangers or nor have our homes been destroyed or taken from us.

    Jay, my feeling is the best thing is to try and NOT think about an end date for this. It will just make it all the more frustrating. As they say, be in the now!
