It is said that when you look into the abyss, the abyss stares back at you. We can look at what’s happening throughout the world, see death and destruction that this pandemic has leashed up us and be drawn into that. We can also look deep into it and see light, love and assistance. It’s our choice which path we take. I choose to recognize the love. There is no shame in needing help. We are a tribe of family, friends, cities, states, countries and one world. We all need help at some point in our lives, and we all have something we can offer our fellow human beings at a time of need.
Mr. Rogers said, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
It may sound cliche, but we really are better together. You are valuable, You are loved, You are not a statistic. If you find yourself in need, please reach out; if you can help, please do so.
We all have to eat, below is a list of helpers offering food and other necessities for us all:

People in general can be the most unreliable things. Something happens to us when things are at their worst, that’s when you see the best in us.
No matter who you are, thank you from all of us here at OC Music News.
The shift in our fortune tests the reliability of our character
