The Real Heroes Of the Pandemic

The Real Heroes Of the Pandemic

I would like to dedicate today’s article to all the men and women that are holding this country together. You people are the glue of this nation. We here at Zombie Guide Magazine would like to give you a heartfelt thank you for all your hard work and bravery during these trying times. I did not rate these professions because I feel they are all number one. The Real Heroes Of the Pandemic:

Medical Personnel

These include anyone in the medical professions right now. The nurses spending countless hours on their feet, ensuring all patient needs are met. The doctors, doing there best to ease their pain and symptoms. The lab techs working on a cure, or running COVID-19 tests. The cleaning staff that is working tirelessly to keep things sterilize and clean. Thank you for your work.

Emergency Personnel

These are your first responders out on the streets keeping things safe. To the cops out there controlling the riots, yet still answering calls to protect the general public. The firefighters putting out big and small fires because they don’t stop during a crisis. The EMT officers exposing themselves to the Coronavirus to save your grandfather’s life, while he is having a heart attack, against there own safety. Thank you for your work.

Store Clerks

You get paid so little, to deal with so much. This thanks, goes out to all the cashiers working double shifts so your family can have food on the table. The stock teams that are trying to keep the shelves stocks while being bombarded by people grabbing what they can over there heads. The managers handling complaints about inventory issues. The gas station attendants doing there best to keep fuel pumps full and functioning so cars can keep moving. Thank you for your work.

Truck Drivers

You boys are the backbone of our society. Without you, things could get a lot worst, so fast. These people are choosing to be away from there family to deliver goods your family desperately needs. Even though at times you feel under-appreciated, just know that I am thankful every day you guys are out there hauling and delivering. They are the ones responsible for keeping the shelves stock by driving long hours on the roads. In fact, they are out there right now holding their bladder, so your family can have toilet paper. Thank you for your work.

Utility Workers

These people do so much and get so little attention that I felt they deserve some honoring. These are the power line operators, who are out there maintaining the electric substations and cables to make sure you don’t lose power. The plumbers, fixing and repairing your water and gas lines so you have fresh, clean water to wash your hands, and gas to heat your home. Internet companies, trying to keep up your connection so you can stay current on the COVID-19 news. The phone companies, that are out there struggling to prevent towers from overloading, so you don’t lose your main line of communications. Thank you for your work.

Armed Forces

Lastly, our servicemen and women. For without you, I wouldn’t even have been allowed to write this article. Thanks for always being there when we needed you the most. For being willing to leave your family to protect mine. There is no amount of thanks I can give you for your great sacrifice. To the National Guard protecting our streets to the Navy developing a floating hospital to help the sick, thank you for your work.
