Many Thanks

We are experiencing stress and worry during this time of uncertainty. There have been many restrictions put into place across the world. Many of us are practicing social distancing and not leaving our homes with the exception of taking a walk or getting some essentials. However, many people are not able to stay home. There are important people I wanted to recognize and take a moment to thank for their hard work, dedication, compassion, and perseverance. I greatly appreciate their work during this pandemic.

Thank you to the retail workers for spending tireless hours restocking shelves with food and essential items for us.

Thank you to the truck drivers for making the deliveries to the stores so the retail workers have items to restock.

Thank you to the healthcare workers for treating and testing an endless number of patients for COVID-19 and preexisting health conditions.

Thank you to the police officers and firefighters for continuing to keep us safe during this time of uncertainty.

Thank you to all the educators and administrators for diving into uncharted waters to continue the education of the students.

Thank you to my students’ parents who have been appreciative of my emails and sending me heartwarming emails to keep me connected to my students.

Thank you to those taking this pandemic seriously and adhering to the recommendations of social-distancing to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

  1. I love this. It’s so important for us to show appreciation to all of these people. I especially like the last one. During these times, it’s crucial that we are all “rule-followers”.

    Shelly, you are so right. We need to be thankful to all those who are keeping it together for us. It’s no easy task to leave home to stock shelves, to take care of the sick, to drive long distances to re-supply grocery stores and pharmacies. Great post today.
