Over the span of the last two months, various organizations in the area have partnered with Farmers to Families to bring Go Fresh fruit/vegetable and dairy boxes to the area. Morris has had a couple. Preston First Baptist Church has done several and Okmulgee Main Street recently held a couple of giveaways as well with another planned for today, July 31. These have been a huge blessing to the community. But, if you have picked up more than two of these boxes, you may be starting to accumulate some items.
Pride can so otten be a cover-up for inadequacy. We want to stand alongside those who are doing well and we are apt to brag a little. Someone may have planted a seed in our minds that we need to hold our own against everyone the whole world and it isn’t so. We are persons with our own special world that cannot compete, and should not try to be like someone else.
The COVID-19 pandemic has ushered in many changes to which we must all adjust. Phrases like “selfquarantine” and “social distancing,” rarely used or completely unheard of several months ago are now a part of our daily vocabulary. As we adjust to this “new normal,” America’s sportsmen and women, a group that I am proud to represent as a co-chair of the Oklahoma Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus, have found a way to pursue their outdoor passions while much of the world seemingly stood still. By participating in outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting, sportsmen and women are setting an example for those looking for safe and responsible recreational opportunities.
