Coronavirus #3: The Real Heroes & Role Models

The coronavirus epidemic has taught us a few important lessons. One of those lessons is really a reminder of what we already know to be true.  The real heroes are not athletes and entertainers. Simply being in a high profile position or viewed regularly on television does not make someone a positive role model. The past few weeks has demonstrated that the true heroes and role models are people serving on the front lines each and every day. They are the police officers, fire fighters and first responders. In this particular moment in time, the true heroes are the physicians and nurses who  risk their own lives to treat patients with this infectious disease. They are putting themselves and their families in harm’s way. Twelve hour days are considered an easy shift for these professionals in various hot spots.

This particular video drove this lesson home for me. I hope you take a few moments to appreciate those heroes on the front lines:

Thank you for working those long shifts to make sure everything gets done. Thank you for maintaining a positive attitude and outlook during this process.

  2. I would like to thank them for being brave and caring so much for others.

I hope that they all can stay safe and that they are given the right gear/protection to be able to keep themselves as safe as possible.
