Essential workers are keeping America alive and healthy. They are paying the costs of everyone who is affected by COVID. They are especially vulnerable and burdened and I was happy to bring a little encouragement to them.
For these cards, I did research by watching YouTube videos to see the lives of the people that work in COVID-19 hospitals. It shocked me how much work they are having to put up against. Writing these letters over a week gave me a lot of time to think about how important the role of non-medical people are in social distancing and limiting contact.
This is an amazing way to give back to the healthcare workers. I would do this anytime because some honest words is the least I can do to thank our hero's.
