Stay safe, all

As one who finds putting on band-aids disagreeable, I'm not equipped to offer any medical advice other than to urge everyone to please listen to and follow guidance from the CDC and WHO. Equally importantly, please consider that however you feel about COVID-19 as it relates to catching it yourself, we all have an obligation to each other and especially to our most vulnerable to do our utmost to limit its spread.

Let's close this update with thoughts from Thomas Paine:

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.
