At a time when disaster struck, you faced exhaustion,
exceeding the limits of overtime.
When hostility attacked, you showed compassion,
persisting against their whine.
At a time when everyone fled, you trudged on,
in just your uniform and a mask.
When supplies were limited, you prevailed,
without complaining about the task.
At a time when the world took shelter, you were exposed,
fulfilling your civic duty.
When there was no one else to turn to, you stepped up,
showing your true beauty.
At a time when gratitude is needed,
since things like this come out of the blue.
When human decency is desired,
we would like to join to say thank you.
