As an American, we are in a crisis. The restaurants have shut down, people are either being forced to work from home or take a leave of absence, being forced to file for unemployment benefits. We are fighting an invisible enemy. Italy is in dire straits. Spain is shut down, all people are to stay in their homes. China has fortunately had no new cases of Caronavirus and is expected to make a full recovery. The DOW has made improvement today from starting in the negatives and hopefully by closing bell will be in the positives. Three years of hard work to get the economy recovered have been ruined.
One thing stands in between all of this and that is the ability to push freight across the land. Vital resources for medicine, medical supplies, food, home goods all must come off trucks. Truckers are the one thing that is staying constant. Truckers are the reason that the United States is able to push through the crisis and help everyone get through this. If it wasn't for trucks, hospitals wouldn't be able to stay open for supplies. Italy would be in a worse state than it is now. Doctors would be without the resources that they need to keep or get patients well. We wouldn't be able to keep a global economy running.
Truckers run the world right now. Without them, we would be losing the battle against this pandemic.
For all the truckers out there, Thank you.
Let's keep running the world and get er' done (as we say in the states).
