Unsung Heroes During A Difficult Time
We may not have the time to recognize every one of the workers keeping our society functioning right now, but they are out certainly out there.
COVID–19 has made us all acutely aware of the critical role our scientists, doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals play in keeping us safer. They all provide a measure of comfort to us during a time when there are more questions than answers. We are grateful for their dedication as this Coronavirus pandemic unfolds.
But there are less obvious, but no less essential, workers out there giving it their all.
As I walked down a supermarket aisle this week, I felt the anxiousness of the customers while they searched for the items they believed would best prepare them for what may lie ahead.
It was then I saw a hero.
Her contribution to keeping our community functioning and her dedication to her work won’t be featured on CNN, and some may argue she isn’t on the front lines of the battle against this Coronavirus. But that doesn’t make her role any less important. She is part of a network of workers that is keeping society functioning while we get through this.
It was evident by the quick pace of her work and her intense focus that she understood that she was participating in something bigger than just doing her job.
She is a supermarket stock clerk, and her contribution to society during this tough time makes her a hero in my book.
