I know the days are long and the work is thankless, but from the bottom of my heart, thank you for the work that you're doing. The lives that you're saving. I understand that we're not through this yet, but there are some of us who are taking this seriously. I have been isolated since March to try and make your jobs easier, to keep one more bed empty. You are being heard.

Darker days lie ahead of all of us, but for you they're incomparable; just remember: there are those of us who have listened and continue to listen. Not just for ourselves, but for our communities, and for our health care workers: you.

Again, thank you and may you find the strength to persevere in these trying times.
