Our health care workers are trained to care for others, but they did not sign up for months on end of watching patients struggle to breathe, possible daily exposure to a deadly virus, countless overtime hours and now, it appears, life or death decisions as to which patients who need intensive care cannot receive it. All this while worrying about the effects of the pandemic on their own families. Most of us cannot even imagine the stress they are under. If you know any health care workers, please do something to make them feel appreciated, even if it’s only to say thank you. And if you’re not wearing a mask or practicing social distancing, do it for them.
