I find myself thankful for so many things. During the shutdown, I was grateful for having an essential job in the world of infrastructure. During the Spring of 2019, I decided to stop being a Culinary Chef. If I hadn’t made that change, I undoubtedly would have been sitting home. These days, people are paid to sit home. For some, it’s been a positive experience. For others, not so much. Millions are struggling. Millions more are making things harder for those who are struggling.

We have had an opportunity to find out what Americans are made from. Some people chose to push forward, doing their best to face the daily struggle of life. Our first responders continued to do a fantastic job. For our Police Departments, that job has come with a barrage of disrespect and hatred from people who don’t seem to be happy with anything or anyone. I’m confident that they hate themselves.

We’ve had an opportunity to see the true character of millions of people. Now, with too much free time on their hands, too many have turned on this nation with an ugly vengeance. It reminds me of the nastiness that befalls a family after a loved one passes.
