Clap for all humanity to announce war on COVID-19: Light the 22/40 candle for bravery

I have and will continue to clap for the NHS, all global doctors, carers, nurses and scientists, along with the other key workers. But who are these mystery key workers? Hand on heart, don’t most of us think that the clapping is only for the NHS? Others who might know that there are other applaudable categories too, but struggle to name them all. If you know the details, then you have read the small print and well done, Sirs/Mses. After reading varied articles, blogs, and listening to the News channels and indeed many friends, it seems that their information is either restrictive or indeed a bit patchy about the poor employees on this long list. So, I would like to make a point to clap for all the key workers: Health and social care, Education and childcare (though the schools are now closed), Key Public services- justice system, religious staff ( Though religious places are now closed) and Journalists, National and Local Government, Food and other necessary goods providers, Public security and National security, Transport, Utilities, Communication and Financial Services.
May I also add those brave souls in the shadows who are abiding by Law and in some cases the lockdown is like being out of the frying pan but too close to the fire. Yes, I am talking about those helpless children behind the shut doors in quarantine hell with their abusers, those desperate women and indeed also the men who are a tempting substitute for a punching bag, the elderly, especially who are living by themselves, families with young children who do not have the privilege of a back garden and who are on a mental roller coaster perpetually, and many more of my fellow human beings with many more challenging scenarios, but are still soldiering on to stay safe so others can live too. I will also not forget to clap for me, for you, for the neighbours and millions of the faceless lovely beings around the world who I feel for but don’t know by names, as indeed all the those who read this post. I light the 22nd candle of faith with hearty compassion. Hope you join me.
