COV Efforts I’ve Noticed: Grocery Store

Walking into the grocery store, stories of what the food stores look like now ran through my head with a sense of fear that there may be nothing left. On the contrary, though much was gone, the majority of what I like was still there: oriental noodles, fruits and veggies, health drinks, grain breads, almond milk and much more. Upon realizing this, I shopped with great joy and a small inclination to buy everything. I had to unload my cart a couple times to work with a still remaining budget. The limited employees were working hard, eliminating risk and taking precaution. That’s the first effort I noticed. The second embodied humanity. All cashier aisles were closed and everyone had to self serve. As the light above me started blinking (a discounted item that needed override) the employee came over with a smile. As I left they wished us all well. I watched as they vigorously scrubbed the machines with cleaning solutions in hopes to limit the spread. It’s efforts like these that are Golden: responsibility and still human kindness and respect. I’m so grateful and respect that grocery store in its efforts to remain open to the public. 3/23/20 RESPECT/KINDNESS

Finding the Golden Rule in action everywhere I go! It’s like time stops and I get to watch amazing scenes play out in front of me. Scenes that embody Kindness, Empathy, Respect, and Civility. Arizona is a Golden Rule State and I’m what you might call a Golden Rule prospector.
