When the quarantine started I saw this photo of an old man in an empty store, on my phone.
This photo really touched m, because it made me think about the situation we are in and the selfishness of people during this crisis.
This image touched more than others because, even though we are in a serious and stressful situation, we can’t forget that there are other people that are in more danger than us (for example the elderly).
Panic buying everything isn’t the solution to this even if we are in this pandemic. Panicking is just going to turn a bad situation into a worse one, so we should just buy what we need and not loads and loads of resources because there are other people that need them too.
This is why this shocked me, because it showed how some people just went crazy without thinking of the side effects.
So, in my opinion… just buy the essential and do not forget the other people, too, because panic won’t help resolving it.
