There are a lot of ways to help people through this crisis. Don’t underestimate your way.
Maybe you’re a healthcare worker. You’re stepping in the middle of it every time you go to work, risking your own life so others can breathe. We thank you. We applaud you.
Maybe you’re stocking the shelves at Walmart. Or filling prescriptions at CVS. Or making pizzas at Pizza hut. We thank you. We applaud you.
Maybe you’re still teaching a class of children, in a way you weren’t trained for. You make lesson plans, check up on students, field phone calls from weary parents. We thank you. We applaud you.
Maybe you’re feeding the hungry. You bag groceries at the food banks and put them in car trunks when people drive by. We thank you. We applaud you.
Maybe you’re curating encouraging articles online. You share information on Facebook, tweet helpful posts on Twitter, sends Marco Polo videos and participate in FaceTime chats with friends and families. We thank you. We applaud you.
Maybe you’re still going into work or working from home to earn a paycheck and keep your business in business. You’re also homeschooling your kids and keeping everyone clothed and fed. We thank you. We applaud you.
Or maybe you’re staying home, day in and day out. You’re only going out for food and necessities. You’re keeping distance and washing hands and wearing masks. You’re getting out of bed each morning and trying to sleep every night. You are our heroes, too. We thank you. We applaud you.
Whatever you are doing—and NOT doing—to keep our globe a safer place, we thank you. We applaud you. Don’t underestimate your contribution, whether it’s treating a patient or whether it’s staying in your house. Both of these, and all those in between, are valuable.
Thank God for the breath in your lungs. Pray for those struggling outwardly. Be compassionate to those struggling inwardly.
Congratulate yourself for making it through another day.
Thank YOU for the contributions you are making! Each are important. Please share your thoughts in the comments.
