I want to take a moment to express immense gratitude and love to everyone serving on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.
Thanks to the truckers delivering supplies to stores, and women and children who are making homemade masks and handing out snacks to truckers. Thank you to those who are stocking the shelves all night and letting the elderly shop first. Thank you to the restaurants and schools who’ve said, “we’ve got kitchens and staff; we can feed kids.”
Thank you to the churches that are holding on-line services and taking care of their members and community. From the many men and women in blue, and first responders to awe-inspiring veterans retired from the military, who are volunteering to help our active service members aid and protect all of us, the gratitude list is endless. Thank you. May God bless and protect all of you.
This video was aired on The Today Show; get your tissues ready because if you’re like me, you’ll need a few before you get to the end of this.
God bless the frontline workers selflessly serving their communities during the #COVID19 crisis.
Thank you to the health care workers, first responders, nurses, grocery store employees, truck drivers & more who are stepping up to keep us safe during these unprecedented times. 💛 pic.twitter.com/wNZKTTBRkR

With each day that goes by as we’re comfy in our homes, the world is watching the media telling Americans that we’re divided, but that is not at all the America I’m seeing. I continue to see more and more examples of unity and love, across America and throughout the world.
People are coming together in prayer and support of one another. Local communities are gathering to sing and pray in the parking lots of hospitals to express gratitude to all doctors and nurses and healthcare teams.
Hundreds gather in cars outside Georgia hospital to pray protection and healing over patients and workers in JESUS NAME!

I see Americans and the world coming together and saying, “Hold my Corona, we’ve got this; watch us rise.” Even Budweiser is showing us how we’re all in this together as we fight the Coronavirus.
Give us a few more weeks (maybe months), and we will be doing much better! Jesse Watters shared this inspiring message on his show, Saturday night and it is definitely worth a watch if you haven’t seen it.
"Keep your hands clean. Wash them all day. Carry hand sanitizer. Use your elbows or shoulder to open doors. If you need to touch something like a grocery cart, use the hand sanitizer before and after. And please stop touching your face." #WattersWords pic.twitter.com/ooHmIqq3tQ

Thank you, President Trump, Vice President Pence, and your entire team and our amazing National Guard and Military for working tirelessly to serve and protect all Americans. America is uniting again because of you. We appreciate y’all, and we are eternally grateful for your leadership.
With the courage of our doctors and nurses, with the skill of our scientists and innovators, with the determination of the American People, and with the grace of God, WE WILL WIN THIS WAR. When we achieve this victory, we will emerge stronger and more united than ever before! pic.twitter.com/sFmxKzXdGC

President Trump — “The battle in which we are now engaged has inflicted many hardships on our nation and our families….
You guys, please don’t allow media propaganda and anti-Trump Democrat leadership to convince you that we’re divided – that only makes us weaker. From what I can see; we’re uniting like never before. We’re all in this together, America! We will prevail!
We live in a wonderful country, and we have an amazing God. #unitedwestand
May God Bless America and the world.
