But there are so many frontline heroes who are stepping up daily to help keep things running and to keep food on the stripped grocery store shelves.

There are the medical professionals who literally face the virus daily and keep us alive. There are the grocery store workers who restock those shelves daily and help keep us fed. There are the pharmacists that are working ludicrous hours to fill our prescription, often for people who are stocking up for the long haul (of unknown duration).

Today I’m going to be grateful for those heroes -- doctors, nurses, cleaners, store clerks, truck drivers and the endless list of selfless people that step up daily. Thank you.
