Whether it is bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, or bull riding, it can be a tough ride at times. Unfortunately, the City of Cheyenne business owners will experience the economic impact of this cancellation. It will be a rough ride for them as the annual $20 + million dollar boost to the local economy skips on by this year.
On my blog post of April 14, I quoted a meme which I had seen on social media. It said,
"I hope they let us out of quarantine by July 4, so we can celebrate our freedom."
I never imagined back in April that we would be this close to the holiday and still experiencing the level of restrictions we have. Can you remember when the experts told us "two weeks to flatten the curve"?
These truly are difficult times on many different levels. Yesterday, someone informed me that their father had been placed under the care of hospice just before the pandemic closures. The family has not been able to physically see him since the day he entered the hospice facility. My heart breaks for all of the families who have been disconnected from their loved ones because of the pandemic. It has definitely been a rough ride.
Please know of my prayers for all who are hurting.
