Honoring essential employees…

Yesterday the Air Force Thunderbirds flew all over the Denver metro area to honor essential employees. This is a nice gesture to show gratitude for working during this pandemic.

I was driving to work when it was taking place. People were on the side of the highway taking pictures. I was thinking to myself, “please get out of the way, I’m going to be late for work.” Then I saw the Jets and saw how cool they looked flying over the foothills.

My work place has signs outside that read “Heroes work here”.

Now being a caregiver/nurses aide for over a decade, this is something different. I’m used to us being under valued and looked down upon. People say “you’re a CNA”? You can do better. We constantly get asked did we do this or that by family members or managers and so on. I think to myself “well yeah, of course I did. I do my job and for the past 10 years at that”. We don’t get breaks and we are forced to work sick. This appreciation is something new…

  1. In Italy we got one of the best national flying patrol of the world.
    I know thunderbirds and blue angels and they’re both very good.
    Thanks for you service as a caregiver.
