A Thank You for the Heroes   World Wide WTF?

I am so grateful for the heroes that we have, spending their time and energy to help people who are sick, and in need.

The doctors and nurses, risking their own lives, without proper equipment. The people who bring meals to the homeless, the people doing double shifts to make needed supplies. The cashiers and others in the grocery, who would rather be home, but provide us with supplies, the child care providers for those that need to work to keep us safe.

So many that I might have missed to acknowledge.

My gratitude, and sincere thanks.

Any thoughts out there how to help them help us?

True, but without a lot of monetary resources, sometimes I just want to do something to help.

It is so frustrating that to do good, one must be in place.

I had to take my dog to the vet yesterday.  As I drove past the local shopping centre I was appalled to see how busy it was.

Barely any of it looked like essential shopping.  Most people were just wandering around, looking at their mobile phones.

Oh, liquor stores are considered "essential" here, so we can all stay at home and get drunk, anyway,,,

That is really all they ask. What is needed is volunteers for childcare for Drs.  Nurses and other firstresponders.

Thanks also to all the volunteers who are also helping because before the virus even arrived many countries were short of trained profesionals in the health fields. I was at the county hospital Mondan (no relation to the virus). Usually you check in at admissions, sit in the waiting room wait for name to be called or appear on the notice board with a room number of where to go. With the virus having clients wandering the halls is not a Good idea, So in this case instead of waiting for my name to be called, I waited for a volunteer attendent (member of the local Protecció Civl, gowned and masked) to escort me to different stations and out the door. This was more efficient for another reason, some patients are distracted, don´t hear their name called, so after the 3rd call, some trained medical person higher up the food chain has to be sent to collect them. Protecció Civil only gets a meal, are not paid, which means more service to the patients from the pros.

Isn't amazing how people come together during a crisis to help each other.  It's just possible the human race has a future.
