While the COVID-19 pandemic is leaving us with no option but to stay back home for our safety, there is a group of people who cannot afford these luxuries – the health workers.
These health workers have not only been working day and night for the welfare of the community but also facing a lot of adversities. How courageous and selfless are they that they never give up despite all this. To show gratitude towards them, several nations across the world have been applauding for them, clapping and cheering to pay their respects for them.
The common public is coming together as one and showing the health workers that they are proud of them. A recent event similar to this was witnessed in the United States of America.
Tayla Porter, a 22-year-old paramedic left her house when it was time for her shift. What left her in tears is when all her neighbours came out to their balconies and started applauding for her as she left for work that day. Porter broke down in tears with happiness and was also given a box of chocolates and a homemade cake from her neighbours as signs of gratitude towards her.
Tayla’s sister Ali got very emotional and said that they had barely known anyone in their street earlier. They would see each other every day without the slightest hint about their names. The fact that they would come out to do this is what really surprised Tayla, she added.
“She couldn’t believe that people would even notice what she’s doing. She just loves her job. I had no idea the whole street would come out. I just thought it might be our next-door neighbours and the house opposite. What I didn’t realise was that every single house has at least one person come out to clap for her.”
This gesture carried on all the way up their street and Tayla could also hear people clapping from the next street too. She believes it was a word of mouth or just texting but it brought people together to cheer for this superhero in their street.
All of these amazing health workers are working out of their skins through this pandemic. While the entire world is in distress, it is only because of the efforts of these superheroes that we are alive today. They deserve our utmost gratitude and respect!
