You should know that as the Coronavirus continues to paralyze our nation, Governor Andrew Cuomo is looking more and more Presidential.
It is important for you to know that during these past few weeks, I have heard from many people how blessed they feel as they continue to witness Governor Cuomo’s leadership and patriotism – and I agree with them.
You should know that Governor Cuomo’s willingness to put politics aside and work with President Donald Trump and his Administration is making all the difference.
The Governor oversight of our hospitals has been exceptional. His outreach to medical professionals to step up and his outreach for critically needed supplies such as ventilators, masks, gloves and gowns, and his plans to build beds in various locations, continues to be successful. His outreach for mental health providers to be more available is necessary.
His efforts to communicate regularly to New Yorkers provides strength and direction to many of us. His call for us to Stay Home to Flatten the Curve is responsible.
The Governor calls on us to know that we are all in this together. His guidance includes: “Three word-sentences can make all the difference: ‘I miss you.’ ‘I love you.’ I know many New Yorkers are anxious and worried. But we’re all in this together. Let’s support each other.”
The Governor’s warning to our youth, especially to those who see themselves as invincible and immortal to be responsible and practice social distancing must not be ignored. His recommendation to New Yorkers to show gratitude to our everyday heroes is heartwarming.
My dear reader, you should know that even though I have not seen eye-to-eye with Governor Andrew Cuomo on social issues that include same-sex marriage and the right to life for the unborn, I offer my heartfelt support and my most sincere prayers for him.
Ladies and gentlemen, if there is nothing else that you can do, I invite you to join me in prayer for the President, for the Governor, the Mayor of the City of New York and for all the leaders of this beautiful nation , as they continue to assess this unprecedented global crisis, and lead us to a safer New York.
I ask for you to join me in prayer for the growing number of my colleagues in government who have sacrificed much of their lives to serve as representatives for the people. Some of them are testing positive for the Coronavirus. Also, join me in prayer for all of the senior citizens, families and individuals who are testing positive for the Coronavirus and suffering its consequences.
I am Council Member Reverend Rubén Díaz, Sr. and this is what you should know.
