I felt it today. Stronger than before. The desperation. The fear. The panic. In others and in myself. I hadn’t been in a store yet that had shelves left completely empty. In fact, this same store just 3 days ago had a very different atmosphere and availability of products. To now see row upon row of cleaning products, toilet paper, bread, meats, hand sanitizer…just wiped out. It was eerie and scary to see such a familiar place, a place I spend a large part of my life inside, look so…unfamiliar. So barren.
There was a feeling in the air and among the shoppers that something big is coming. What exactly it is, we’re not sure. We have ideas. But as the impending doom slowly bears down on us, we’ll only know when it’s here.
This is unlike anything I have ever witnessed…and it scares me.
