This article is not meant to scare you, but as the United States, and the world, are fighting a very serious pandemic, here is some food for thought. I first want to say that we are not all going to imminently die because of this pandemic and that all hope is lost. This is not the case. However, whether we’re in a pandemic or not, it is of the utmost importance to make a vital decision for your future.

As we navigate the current crisis let's not forget that the census opened on April 1. Missouri has a response rate of only 54.2 percent. Crawford County has a response rate of only 42.8 percent.
I would like to say I appreciate all the doctors, nurses, first responders, law enforcers, postal workers, sanitation workers who are always right on duty no matter pouring rain, sleet or snow and heat.
The Wings of Eagles in Crawford County is about prayer and focusing on patriotism. We have the countywide prayer meetings that are held monthly (meetings are not being held at this time due to the virus) and we have just launched the Wings of Eagles Prayer Team.
There is a bill making its way through the state legislature that would change the way we register to vote and how we conduct our primaries. HB 1639 was introduced by Rep. Jered Taylor and would force voters to register with a party 23 weeks before the primaries and would close our primaries to any voter who did not want to pick a party. This would be a step in the wrong direction and would limit participation.
