So many people to be thankful for in this crazy time

Bang some pots and pans and make some noise for those sacrificing so much

So I went outside (Saturday) night at seven o’clock, and guess what I heard. Nothing?

Full disclosure, I work at the doctors office. I wasn’t looking for thanks. I was there to give my support and thanks.

There are so many people that need to be thanked for their bravery and efforts in this crazy new world. Doctors, nurses and the staff that keep our hospitals running. The police, firefighters, paramedics who bravely go into situations that most would run from. All store employees, gas station staff, drugstore staff and the delivery drivers keeping our stores going.

To all the people who have lost their jobs, closed their businesses, thank you for your sacrifice. For all the parents who are now educators, thank you. To everyone missing their loved ones and friends, thank you.

I will be out there at seven o’clock beating my pots together in thanks for all of you. Please join me.

Cindy Doumont,
