Letter: ‘Golden Rule is alive and well on Whibey Island’

Editor,

As senior citizens with compromised immune systems, we have tried to self-quarantine as much as possible lately. We go out only to pick up groceries, supplies and prescriptions, but now we may be able to stay home even more.

During the past few days several friends and neighbors have called to see if we needed anything and a friend drove over to check on us. These thoughtful acts are much appreciated and substantiate our belief that the Golden Rule is alive and well on Whibey Island.

With people like this who go out of their way to look out for others, we know that we will get through this Coronavirus pandemic together. God bless us all! God bless America!
