Humanity is crying, mankind is set to be free. Because of the impact of covid-19 pandemic, our businesses and economy are falling apart in Memphis,tn. We need your sympathy and financial support in order to survive.
I am a small business owner from Memphis. I live with my small family of two kids and wife in a small rented apartment here in Cottonwood located at Cotton Drive. I used to run a small packaging business of packing supply. My business is almost temporarily closed under the pressure of COVID-19 since all small businesses in Memphis are having a hard time during COVID-19 shutdowns, so are other businesses.
Memphis is considered a mid-sized American city, but it has no shortage of places telling stories of the human will solidifying it's place a world class city. All are tourism attractions, but some of these are small businesses that contribute to Memphis' economic structure are falling apart.
Not only Memphis,tn, The effect of COVID-19 on small businesses across the country has left an impact on many communities. A recent study found 800 small businesses a day are closing across the country!
A study done by Yelp found that roughly 160,000 businesses closed between April and September last year.
I am direct with my children about losing the business. They are sad and upset - particularly my 12 years old. Pepe's Cafe had been a major part of her life. Tears gushed. She is generally concerned: will we actually will eat at Pepe's Cafe? Yet, presently she enjoys having her daddy around constantly.
At first, my wife was relaxed as she has seen me in so much stress trying to create a meaningful future for the business and for myself. I don't have any a severance, so we are very much worried about our near future. I don't know how I am going to fulfill all demands of my family. All I know that I don't own any house, live in a rented apartment. Neighbors and relatives started asking Marry, "What's White's next move?"
At the point when Marry and I are feeling the pressure of the obscure we advise ourselves that this is a window of time we've been given, and we should handle it. However, in truth, I'm not sleeping well and am regularly worn out from the pressure of what's next. I attempt to continue to advise myself that there are no genuine issues here. Just uncertainty and fear. But it gets hard for me to hide tears when I see the same uncertainty and fear on faces of my two kids.
Dear Friends, we need each other's support,prayers and empathy in order to overcome this crisis.
