How do I Buy Time?

| July 02, 2020

Does anyone know a website where you can buy more time? I have looked on Amazon, stopped by Wal-Mart and Target, and even shopped local, and from what I can tell, there isn't anywhere I can buy more time. My boys are 7 and 10, and I worry they have missed a summer of fun, I worry about the high school seniors facing a challenging year of doing the sports and activities they love. I worry about the College Freshman who won't get to experience that full college experience. I worry about parents who miss a year of watching their kids grow up or the once in a lifetime trips lost this summer. I worry about the greatest generation that lost a chance to tell their story and watch others live theirs.
