Good morning PMLE. As the days progress, new, developing and changing information seems to be coming out at a faster pace. We'll add updates here as we feel they are necessary, but I can assure you, with everything going on it won't be as regular as it is right now. Hopefully, the title of this post put a smile on your face, as it was intended.
So, as you are all probably aware by now, Governor Wolf has made a lot of statements, held a lot of pressers, and well, provided us much to ponder and abide by. To date, his stance on things is as follows:
On a more personal note, I understand how trying this time is. I wish I had words to offer you that would ease your burden or set your mind at ease. Sadly, I do not. I can say that we, as in humans and neighbors, are in this together. Let's be reminded that some of us are struggling with health issues, financial issues and just the agitation with being cooped up. Some others are dealing with stress from their jobs, because they still work, whether as a part of the health care industry, first responders or in a factory/plant that makes essential health care items. There has been a large amount of pressure put on all of us during this time, including our children. I put this message out to remind all of us that while we may not be friends, we can be friendly. While we may not have dinner together, we can offer you a meal if you need it. Essentially, we need to be a little more understanding that we're all dealing with something. We need to be a little less irritable.
I hope that every single member of PMLE is currently safe, as well as their families, no matter previous transgressions or whether we talk/know each other or not. I implore you to please jump onto PMLE's Facebook page and request help if you need any. You don't have to do it publicly, but you can message any one of the members on that page, and someone will help, if they can. For your sanity, please, take a walk, do some gardening or just have a seat outside and get some fresh air. We all need to stay mentally well, while trying to maintain physical wellness.
