I wish all that is happening in the world was one big April Fool’s joke. However, it is not.

But please don’t panic. We will all get through this with some common sense, compassion, and patience.

I’ll start by saying the same things I’ve been saying for two weeks. Wash your hands. Stay home when possible. If you can’t stay home, go out and back as quickly as you can, and unless you need to, leave your kiddos at home. Please don’t hoard stuff. Wash your hands.

I’m admittedly an optimist. I try to see the bright side — the silver lining — in most things. So where is the bright side in all this?

Well, I think it’s right here in our community and us coming back to our communities. We are all starting to realize how important each individual in our community it to keep it afloat and functioning.

The restaurants in our area have stepped up to support our community in an amazing fashion. They are feeding us, and in a lot of cases, feeding our kids — for FREE! I think the best way to say thank you for that is to patronize them now and in the coming months.

The restaurants are the cover are just a few examples of what is available in the area as far as take-out and delivery options available. I wish I could have listed each one, but space limitations are real. I encourage each of you to do your best to order from a local restaurant in the coming weeks. We want to see all of these establishments survive and thrive during an unprecedented time in our lives.

I won’t spend my whole column telling you all the ways that supporting local restaurants — and local businesses in general — is vital to the local economy, you are well aware of that. Instead, I’m going to try to list as many local restaurants that I can that are offering take-out and delivery to keep your family fed, healthy, and comforted right now.
