The best and the worst

A crisis brings out the best and the worst in people.

Among the good:

* the landlord who turned up at a small business and told the tenant he was forgoing rent for the next few months.

* the Subway franchisee who gave the fresh food she’s no longer able to sell to a food bank.

* the people who have created virtual networks with neighbours so people can ask for, and offer, help.

* the people who are doing what they should be – shopping as normal, maintaining safe distances from others, staying at home.

* the health professionals who are working to keep us all safe.

Among the bad:

* the panic buyers of groceries, alcohol and guns.

* the people who won’t follow the directive to stay home except for essential trips and maintain a two meter distance from others when they’re out.
