Patrick: “I don’t see how the pandemic has affected my living alone. I still work. I still shop for food.
But I have a health issue. Having to make decisions about that—some forced, some against others’ advice—that has been hard.
My son lives in Louisville and is very involved in the Black Lives Matter protests. Having to watch him from a distance—that’s been really difficult. I’d rather my son be involved, as he can make a difference, but watching from afar is hard.”
