Day 4 Isolation
It is times like these that we see who the important people in society are.
I can often get frustrated that the monetary system presently in place puts financial value on the ones who seem to do the least work. This obviously doesn’t apply to all, but my question is why do we pay the famous football player considerably more than the nurse/carer? Why does the accountant in the hospital who sits in a comfy office get paid considerably more than the orderly who is cleaning up the body fluids of our most sick? Why does a politician who is retired after completing only a few years of service still paid more than our firemen? Why is the council worker who sits in his office making policies and changes in roading, without consultation with the people who it effects paid more than the supermarket worker who is vital in these times?
I would like to dedicate Day 4 to all the people on the front line who are risking their own lives to serve us at this difficult time. These are the people we need to appreciate and hold in high esteem; these are the ones we cannot live without and keep us going, the ones who make a difference to our lives and are doing the crucial jobs we need.
