Normally we would be at Mom and Dad’s today, helping them do their “normal” things. But nothing is normal these days. Last night, Governor Beshear announced a forced closure of all “non-essential” businesses. People are angry, afraid, desperate, depressed, and everything in between. It is so WEIRD to be in the USA and not be able to find basic items in the stores. I know from travels that other places don’t enjoy the same abundance we’re used to here, but it’s so strange to be seeing it every day at home.
