Long after the Corona Virus has passed into our history books may their be a sentence or two on us. The essential workers who came in when others couldn’t. We were essential not because we had the highest salary or walked the streets of fame but because of the vital work we performed during a crisis. Whether it was the woman who delivered food to the house, the lumberyard employee, who suddenly sold masks to protect their community, the sanitation engineer who insured the virus didn’t spread, the fast food employee who made sure we actually had something to eat, the police officer who made sure we were 6 feet apart or the nurse who fought to literally keep the victims alive we came in when others were locked out. We literally risked our life’s not for fame or fortune but because we were needed. After this pandemic passes the lights will become bright to those who hit a ball, sing a song or dance but let us not forgot those who were essential when it truly counted.
