Our nation’s changed, it’s different now.
We closed our borders, made a vow,
“We’ll work together, yet stay home.
We’ll stay in place, pledge not to roam.”
Some forced to live a slower pace,
While others run a frantic race.
We see new heroes now emerge
To meet our needs, to fight the scourge.
Those dedicated to their task,
Each draped in gown and facial mask,
To those engaged to keep us whole,
Each do their part and play a role,
To those who rise to meet our need,
To all who serve in word and deed,
We give you thanks for all you do,
You give us hope, we’re proud of you.
