As the state starts to open up again, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you who stayed smart and stayed home.

You helped keep the virus away from people - many people - like me, who have unseen conditions that would make the coronavirus extremely dangerous to us. You are compassionate and responsible. You care enough about others to sacrifice for us.

A billboard I saw put it well and I will quote some of it:

"When you see the empty streets ... don't say to yourself, 'It looks like the end of the world.' What you're seeing is love in action, what you're seeing is how much we do care for each other ... for people we will never meet. Let it fill and sustain you. It isn't the end of the world. It is the most remarkable act of global solidarity we may ever witness."

All who are part of that act of generosity and caring need to know how much you are appreciated; I am proud to have shared this experience with you.

You are helping to keep me and so very many others safe. I am so grateful!

Lynn Walker
