Good job and thank you!
I thought this but couldn’t say it to everyone I thought should hear it. As I write this, we have been asked—mandated—to avoid unnecessary contact with others in order to limit the spread of the virus. So I’m working remotely exclusively these days.
But many people must work and come into contact with others. Those are the people I want to commend. The health care personnel—doctors, nurses, orderlies, and all those others behind the scenes who allow them to function—willingly step up to care for those infected. They are putting themselves in danger to help those who are infected as well as the rest of us who have escaped infection so far. Some do so out of Christian faith in response to the command of Jesus to love others.
I include the researchers around the world who are working to find some way to halt the virus. Their task is difficult and challenging. They too are placing themselves in harm’s way for the rest of us, and we hope and pray that they will be successful in the months ahead.
