Attitude of Gratitude
The COVID-19 pandemic has been an international crisis for nearly a year. One of the most important lessons that has been reinforced throughout this time is to be thankful for the small gifts we witness.
Sixth-grade students worked together and purchased pizza for the front-line workers at Royal Stoke University Hospital in England. The hospital has had recent increased admissions of coronavirus patients. Front-line workers are working tirelessly as they combat the invisible enemy. Times have been extremely challenging for them; in fact, some workers can barely eat when they are on their shift. After receiving the pizza, the nurse in charge of the shift was ‘in tears’ and all the nurses were so thankful for the food. One nurse, Ms. Waltho, said “At a time when healthcare staff feel so low and deflated, responses like this remind us that we are supported.” She tweeted a picture of the pizza and thousands of people retweeted it. Some people were inspired by the post to do something similar.
We are proud of the students who donated pizza to front-line workers who much appreciated the food. We continue to pray for those affected by the coronavirus and thank all front-line workers and other essential workers for their continued incredible efforts!
