The 50th anniversary of Apollo 13 is a reminder of not panicking in adversity, much like the COVID-19 virus pandemic of today. Using alternative medicines, procedures, makeshift masks, makeshift ventilators, just being resourceful in an emergency. We Americans are resourceful. Instead of governors complaining about what they don't have, remember what the Apollo astronauts and a cadre of engineering talent accomplished 50 years ago. They made it back to earth with what they had. So while we all are sheltering in place, let's start praying and believing that we will get back to a healthy and prosperous America and world!
