With restaurants closed across the country, Americans are relying almost solely on their local grocery stores to feed their families. The coronavirus continues to infect more people by the day as even rural areas are seeing a steady climb in people who have contracted the disease.
Our grocery store clerks and employees are putting themselves at great risk by keeping our most essential businesses open. Most of them come in contact with hundreds of people a day and have a constant fear of becoming ill. These workers are truly on the front line as we fight this invisible war. We owe them a great debt of gratitude.
On your next trip to the grocery store, make sure you thank any employees you interact with. Let them know how much they matter and how essential their role is as we battle this invisible enemy. We literally cannot win without them.
