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; 

demonstrating 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.
