First, we should all be thankful for the essential workers in this pandemic. Not just doctors and nurses and EMTs, but police, firefighters, grocery workers, food delivery workers, infrastructure repair workers and many others.
And all the researchers and scientists who have worked ridiculously hard to create these vaccines in such a short amount of time and the people who have been willing to test them out.
Personally, I want to thank all the out front employer IT people, who have had to deal with the Gertrudes and Maurices trying to figure out to work from home, when they barely know how to turn on their computers in the first place. Y’all are rock stars.
And for that I’m thankful for the electorate. People convincing other people about the importance of voting. People who offered rides to the polls. People who, despite the pandemic, stood in line to vote.
I know that 2020 has been hard; its been very hard for my family as well. Still, I am Very proud of the fact that we did come together as a people to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. That wasn’t easy, not by a long shot… and the day when the election was first called brought forth more singing and dancing in the streets than from when I was a toddler and man landed on the moon. Oddly enough, for the 21st century… this year may stand out as our most “1969” year so far.
