    I wish that some people
    Here who are advocating for “ is nothing “ “ is only a bad flu “ “Continue with your normal activities” these same
    People can tell their children , brothers, sisters or parents to go on with their lives like nothing is happening. I think those people are full of #### .

    There is no arguing the fact that if all the truckers go home and hide, there will be no supplies or food being delivered to anyone.

    So,
    Staying on the road is essentially the most profound demonstration of our collective duty as truckers.
    How would you feel if all the doctors and nurses hid themselves away at home, or police and fire fighters?
    There are essential positions that have to be maintained, no matter what.


    And saying 'we must not get to the point' is simply hiding from the truth.
    The truth is that if things get bad enough there will be a choice to be made - period.
    We can try to avoid getting to that point, but it could happen no matter what we do.

    And if the essential service providers simply quit, then they would be the ones deciding that no one is fit to live.

    Does that include people we, as truckers, rely on?
    Like people that work in truck stops?

    There are people in support positions that really need to stay working if the country is going to keep functioning.
    One link broken in a very long chain will stop everything.

    I delivered grocery stuff to a big DC in Wilsonville, OR early this morning. There were lots of trucks coming and going. Warehouse was fully staffed.

    People still have to eat.
