Unsung Heroes #139

As the coronavirus pandemic rages, we are surrounded by heroes.

Neighbors look out for the elderly, the infirm, the lonely. A doctor collects face masks for her colleagues. Teenagers run errands for strangers.

There’s a different vibe today than 2 weeks ago. And while much of it is dark and foreboding, another part is as bright as the spring that is right around the corner.

I could cite hundreds of folks as Unsung Heroes. In the weeks ahead, I will.

Please email me with individual nominations (dwoog@optonline.net). Countless people are doing wonderful things, every COVID day. Some impact thousands; others, just one.

All are important. I want to hear — and celebrate — them.

But today, if you’ve done something nice and good and kind in the days since the coronavirus came to town, give yourself a pat on the back.

You are our Unsung Hero!

The Greens Farms Congregational Church food collection for organizations in Bridgeport and Stamford — at a safe social distance, of course — is one of countless acts of kindness we’ve seen over the past two weeks.

    You Dan, are definitely an unsung hero. Your blog has kept us all connected, provide a platform to air praise, complaints, etc. Thanks for the good work.

    I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your work and the hope it provides. Thank you soooo much! I am a psychotherapist in town and need the support to keep moving on the bright side.
