Thank you to the NHS staff and volunteers in my country, fighting this pandemic to protect us all, like soldiers would fight in a war even though in a war soldiers have all the equipment they need but our NHS staff are fighting and dying (😟) without all the PPE they need.
Thank you to medical staff around the world fighting this pandemic for their countries, even though many of those medical staff will also be lacking PPE.
Thank you to the teachers, some looking after the children of essential workers and others still managing to teach their students via online classes.
Thank you to all the public transport drivers, getting essential workers who have no option but to use public transport from A to B.
Thank you to the cleaners cleaning public buildings.
Thank you to the bin men/women still taking our rubbish so we can live in clean homes.
Thank you to social workers ensuring children are safe during lockdown.
Thank you to specialist educational professionals ensuring children with learning disabilities can still try their best to learn.
Thank you to social care workers looking after our elderly and our severely disabled during this pandemic.
Thank you to our charity workers still providing charity to those who need it the most during this pandemic.
Thank you to our police who are trying their best to get people to follow social distancing measures, without violence.
Thank you to the truck drivers still delivering our essential items.
Thank you to delivery drivers still delivering whatever it is we may order online.
Thank you to our fire service staff still working just in case we need them during this pandemic.
Thank you to our production workers who are ensuring whatever we need goes through production.
Thank you to local authority staff and volunteers supporting vulnerable children and adults, the homeless, and victims of domestic abuse during this pandemic.
Thank you to our legal staff ensuring that even some justice is still served during this pandemic.
Thank you to our funeral service workers arranging funerals for those sadly lost during this pandemic.
To Sum It All Up...
Thank you to all of our workers during this pandemic.
Please if you think of anymore workers which I haven't listed here, then please mention them in the comments- I can't list literally everybody but know I thank all the workers who are out their working helping to keep all of our countries going, during this pandemic.
It shouldn't take a pandemic for us to realise the importance of our workers. One good thing I that has come out of this pandemic is that people are opening their eyes and realising how important our workers are which is also kind of sad because... It's just sad it takes a pandemic for some people to realise the importance of our workers.
Our NHS staff and medical workers always do their best to look after people pandemic or not.
Our teachers are always teaching the next generation and looking after children pandemic or not.
Our public transport drivers are always taking us and essential workers from A to B pandemic or not.
All our workers do their jobs pandemic or not.
So why is it we only appreciate them properly when something drastic like a pandemic happens?
We shouldn't just clap for our workers during a pandemic, we should clap for our workers all the time and I don't mean literally clap but we should always be supportive of our workers and when they strike let's not swear at them for striking- like some do, let's ask them why they're striking because most of the time workers strike for a legit reason and we should support them, but don't so their voices fizzle out.
Let's all stand together and support our workers not just now, but from now on, always.
