Be The Light At The End Of The Covid 19 Tunnel

What do you do if you have preexisting conditions but have been very careful and not contracted covid 19, that you know of. Let’s say you have an asthma attack or are showing signs of having a heart attack and need to go to the hospital. The hospital is like a frontline war zone, full of covid 19 patients and is not safe for people with health problems who are negative for covid 19. It is happening now.

The medical staff is exhausted and praying there is a light at the end of the covid 19 tunnel. They have hope and keep going by sheer willpower knowing there has to be an end to this. At times they are low or without the necessary protective equipment and use whatever is handy to make due so they can continue on in this plight of a pandemic.

They show up for work knowing they may not have someone to replace them at the end of their 12hr shift or they are needed in another area when their current shift is finished. And we have the audacity to complain?

Take a few moments when you are feeling overwhelmed and think about our front line workers and what they are sacrificing to help. Sure they may be earning money but there is no way to pay them what they are worth. How do you put a price on saving someone’s life? They do it because they are dedicated and are here to help.

Each of us have such a simple task to do to help the medical staff, the Covid 19 patients and help stop the spread. We can help by social distancing, wearing a mask, practicing good hygiene and leaving an area cleaner, whether you are indoors or out, than when you found it. It’s all such simple and easy things to do if each and every one would do them eventually we would go through this to the other side and to the light at the end of the covid 19 tunnel. Please be very mindful, teach everyone you know: how to wear a mask properly, properly wash their hands , use hand sanitizer, don’t touch anything unless you’re cleaning and when you’re done, do it all again—Our mantra is “We can be the light at the end of the covid 19 tunnel”
