… if you are a doctor or nurse or first responder, thank you. The vast majority of us know that you are putting yourself in harm’s way either to prevent us from getting sick, or to heal us when we do. Your bravery in facing coronavirus is known to us — and admired.
I can only imagine that there are long nights, disheartening days, times of tedium and ever-present, understandable fears.
Yes, there are conspiracy theorists. We know that they impugn your integrity with beliefs that are rife with disorder and bereft of evidence. The sane among us give them no credence; you should pay them no attention. The majority of us know that we owe you gratitude and respect.
Be safe. Remember that your fellow Americans are thinking of you.
