Herald homework: We have so many heroes in our lives

I dedicate this letter to all of the heroes around us.

First, I want to thank the health care workers who have been risking their lives to save ours. Second, I want to thank the teachers who continue to educate us. Third, I appreciate the child care workers who take care of the children so that their parents can work.

Fourth, I want to thank the food workers who make sure that we can still buy food that is essential for human/animal health and growth. Fifth, I want to thank key public services who are necessary workers who are needed during this time. Sixth, I want to thank local and national governments who we need for our country to run smoothly.

Seventh, I want to thank utility workers who are needed to keep electricity, water, sewage systems working. Eighth, I want to thank public safety and national security people who constantly work to keep everyone safe.

Lastly, I want to thank transportation workers who risk their lives to make sure people arrive to work safely. If you are not one of these workers, that does not mean you are not a hero. You are! In fact, anyone can be a hero! It takes one droplet at a time to spread kindness in the world!
