Michael and all,
 Thank you for  sharing such a heartfelt note to the list.	
 Our first responders  have been and continue to be tremendous  assets in the fight against the corona virus.
 Our medical professionals, scientists  and more have been so valuable as well, and thanks just don’t seem like enough. 
I am sure we all hear about and many people participate in moments of solidarity to support those front line workers out in our communities and I hope more of us continue to.
 After all, we are members of our community and as members of our community  we are equal in sharing in the joys, challenges, rights and responsibilities that come  with membership in that community.
I think about other ways that we can contribute to supporting those frontline workers or our neighbors who  might be struggling or our federation brothers and sisters.
 What are the things that our division is doing?
If nothing is in the works how do we put something into motion, who do we talk to in leadership of our division to start to make something happen?
  Michael your words  were  thoughtful, full of reflection and  gratitude. Thank you for  sharing them and thank you for the great text description.

We’d like to reflect on all the great and wonderful things these health professionals are doing to keep us and their families well! We’d like to give a bigggg shoutout to the doctors, nurses, police and firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians for continuing to staying committed to keeping us safe and helping us out one body at a time, whether it’s during a fire rescuing people from their burning homes or whether it’s transporting someone to the hospital who has corona virus-related symptoms. Even the smallest acts of kindness go a long way and we’ll get through this crisis. Because of our medical staff and our first responders staying committed to best medical practices and doing these wonderful and heroic deeds we will continue to survive and thrive and we can push ourselves through this pandemic with that added hope and peace of mind that we are resilient and if we can get through cold weather, then we can make it through anything. I know it’s hard, I know it’s not butterflies and rainbows even for the bravest of souls, but we’ll get through it one day at a time, one step at a time, one day of service at a time, one journey at a time. WE ROCK!!!!!!
> So first responders, if you’re reading this, I just want to say that there is no words to describe how much you mean to me, and I know and I realize that we can’t do it without your help and without your being there for us in the most challenging of times. And we thank you for your award winning world class service, your kindness, and your generosity and for taking the time out of your busy schedules to be there for us, saving lives, and paving the way for a better
> tomorrow. Thank you, and remember the most important things:
> Stay safe, stay healthy, and see you soon!
> Take care and stay healthy friends!
