STRYPER frontman Michael Sweet has urged everyone to be respectful, loving and compassionate as governments around the world struggle to contain the coronavirus pandemic.
Sweet took to his Instagram earlier today (Saturday, March 13) to share a photo he apparently took at his local supermarket, and he included the following message:
“I went out yesterday to buy a few things and I was shocked to see empty shelves and what felt like the end of the world. I tried to buy some soup and there wasn’t much left. Thermometers, toilet paper, pain meds, cleaned out! I felt bad for all the other people who were there looking for these items and unfortunately couldn’t find what they needed due to hoarding and greed.
“I really believe that we’re going to get through this and that we’re going to be okay. If we’re educated and take proper precautions we will overcome. It’s important for us to think of others in all the turmoil and not just think of ourselves. Stay smart, stay calm, be respectful, be loving, be compassionate, be faithful, stay positive. We will persevere.”
