confections at home. Kids are playing in the yard, getting dirty and finding out they like their siblings. All types of books are being consumed. Too bad libraries are closed. But thanks to technology, we can listen to audiobooks on Audible. In many ways, the pandemic is bringing out the best in us. People are volunteering. Kindness is being shown. Those with more are sharing with those with less. We are responding with a barrage of "Thank Yous" in a variety of mediums, ranging from parades to video compilations and one-of-a-kind street art. I'd like to use my favorite page in this magazine to share my personal thank-you list: Thank you to the amazing nurs- es, doctors, anesthesia pros and physician assistants, and any other healthcare worker I left out, who are braving ICU units to save the lives of COVID-19 patients. Thank you to environmental serv- ices for constantly wiping the coronavirus off surfaces. Thank you to law enforcement for keeping us safe in this moment of chaos. Thank you to the firefighters. Thank you to members of the military. Thank you to those who work in the retail food service for risking their lives to keep grocery stores stocked. Thank you to the truck drivers for keeping up with deliveries of food, life staples, life-saving equipment and even N95s. Thank you to the fuel providers for staying open and providing the gas ($1.44 a gallon!) everyday heroes need to get to the frontline. And, of course, thank you to the health experts like Dr. Fauci for their tireless efforts in keeping us informed, educated and safe during this health crisis.
