    Though Im not in none of the positions listed in this newsstory,I will say this about the issue. Its a seriously bad idea. I read a list of Atlanta eateries that were temporarily going to keep their establishments closed/ only take out/ drive in and I can’t blame them.

    I had this very conversation with a relative of mine about a friend of his who is the sole provider for his family. Im frightened for his family as he works in a workplace where social distancing is impossible to do.We haven’t seen him in a year,but the last we heard about his job,it was shut down for whatever reason( which has since reopened).

    Right now, my hair needs to be done, I wish that I can sit down and eat at my favorite restaurant ,go to church and go to Spanish class but they all have been cancelled and I understand why they did it. I wouldn’t want for them to open their places of business to unintentionally sicken themselves and their patrons just to put food on their tables.

    I want their families to be with their kids as I want to live for mine ( if I had some). No amount of money in this world is worth losing my life. It just isnt.
