There's a thing going around here called 518 Rainbow Hunt. It's where you put a rainbow drawing in your window for kids to count when they are out walking. The group has grown to about 20K people in less than a week. It's spreading out towards Buffalo & Boston now too

Some unsung heroes in this mess...

The grocery store cashier.
The grocery store stock clerk.
The medical folks on the front line, from the receptionist to the doctors, to the nurses...
The UPS guy
The truckers that keep that supply chains going...
The farmers who make sure that the supply chain is fed.
The garbage collector...
The municipal water worker...
“I didn’t sign up to be in a position where I’m constantly exposed to a deadly virus, but I understand too that if grocery stores close then there are way bigger problems,” said Philip, who works in the produce section of a Whole Foods store in a southern U.S. state.

Here in Ireland I'm seeing a lot of joiners/carpenters installing clear screens between customers and those working the checkouts. Not all shops are implementing it though, which is a shame.

Perth Australia
One of our neighbors looks old and frail and I see him walking to his check his mailbox daily and pick up the local free newspapers, he has the look of recovering from something bad. I just asked him if we could do his shopping but he has a friend to do that so we baked a banana cake, (vegan, but he won't notice) and took him a large slice, he seemed tickled pink with it.

Thank you for starting this thread @WillHurtDontCare .

This virus. This pandemic. Is bigger than us.
But working together, WE are bigger than this virus. We shadow it.
Our strength comes from our compassion, our love, our kindness, our selflessness.

I believe the residue of emotions felt at this time will stay with us for many years. And that is a good thing.

Behind plexiglass and hanging plastic barriers, I thank my postal worker, the grocery clerk, the delivery driver, and more for staying the course.

I look daily for opportunities to help anyone in need. Let's keep this going....

Just off the top of my head, there's a lot more...
Church tech staff who somehow made online services a reality.
Filming sermons, music and prayers even from their homes.

I had been very critical of how 'ancient' the church has seemed in modern times, but these times proved me wrong a lot.

Also, credits go to my university profs.
Somehow converted everything to project-based grading, and put in untold hours to produce lecture recordings and tutorials.

I've also been very critical about how ancient tertiary education was. Perhaps now, we can see them work to improve their arrangements.
