We are living in a historic period in American history. The events of the day have caused anxiety, frustration and hostility among some citizens of this blessed nation. While some have chosen to speak out negatively, it should be remembered that our nation has been through far more difficult times than these. During those times, “the People of the United States” chose to work as one to overcome difficulties and challenges. 

Restrictions such as wearing face coverings, social distancing and not gathering in large groups seems such a simple request from our elected leaders. The preamble states these purposes to protect us all, “insure domestic Tranquility and promote the general Welfare.” “”\We the People” are the ones who ought to be doing our best to comply with science driven directives that our leaders are mandating, to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,” rather than quarreling that our civil liberties are being violated.

How can we, as a people, ever hope to have a “more perfect Union” with so much bickering?
