Let’s get this straight. NOBODY thinks that what happed to George Floyd is not a tragedy. Nobody thinks that it is in any way acceptable. It was 100% a criminal act and deserves to the prosecuted to the full extent of the law. At the same time however, no reasonable person could ever think the response has been appropriate.
If you are anything like me, you probably love dollar stores. And who could blame you? As long as you're not trying to get anything big or fancy, you can save a lot at these fun little shops.
As sad as is makes me having been someone who studied journalism in college, the fact is that the news is generally negative. If it was a Disney character, it would be Eeyore. If it was a Saturday Night Live sketch charter, it would be Debbie Downer. But as so often is the case, the media doesn’t tell the whole story. As country singer Luke Bryan put it “I believe most people are good.”
If you have found yourself checking the grocery stores, pharmacies, dollar store and even gas stations searching for any signs of the illusive item we know as toilet paper, you are certainly not alone.
When you turn on the news, search through social media feeds or pick up an old-school newspaper, its story after story about empty shelves at the supermarkets, businesses shutting down and people running around in fear of an invisible and unsympathetic threat.
