We worry about the folks who have had their jobs removed by the COVID-19 pandemic while our nation “shelters in place.” The doctors and nurses on the front line are in the spotlight and in our prayers. But let us take a moment to appreciate the unexpected heroes of the day. We still need to eat. The cooks and pizza and sandwich makers have stepped into the breach. While restaurants are closed, many have opened their back doors to take-out orders so people can still eat. Delivery people like Postmate, Doordash and Uber Eats drivers have become supply line superstars as they convey food that last 200 feet to your door. Remember the truck drivers and stockers who are working long hours to replenish our store shelves after the panic buying of the last week. These invisible people are suddenly indispensible. Our thanks to you all.
Dan Bidstrup,
Lakewood
