When this outbreak started, the world stood still:
Many people have died and others are ill.
We're all quarantined, nervous, and scared;
Truthfully because we've been unprepared.
It would seem like hope is all but gone:
But we can't lose heart. We must stay strong.
So let's give it up for the people out there,
Doing their best and showing they care.
To the drivers of the buses, cars, and trains;
To the folks shipping food from trucks and planes;
To the doctors and nurses fighting the good fight,
Working tirelessly every day and night:
To the Home Health Aides out in the field,
Caring for patients and being their shield;
To the people shipping packages near and far:
No matter who you work for, you know who you are.
To the men and women in the military,
The police, fire department, and the EMTs;
Let's not forget our parents and teachers,
Who watched us grow and are always to reach us.
We don't say this enough, but we know it's true:
For everything you do, we want to say, "Thank you."
