A Response to Responders

Danielle Panto

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.
