GRATITUDE FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS

Info

War, pandemic and natural disasters always leave dreadful consequences in human history. Unfortunately, we are confronting COVID 19 as a new catastrophe paradigm and no one can argue over its negative influences. It is going to end up like the outbreak of influenza in the previous century; the advancement of biotechnology and medical system is going to be successful in treatment solutions. Nevertheless, the question is how many deaths it will take and what else we will lose until we can be back to the normal pace of life, or until we can "live with coronavirus, not in fear of it" (Simon Jenkins, 2020).

After watching VTV's documentary short film, I constantly ponder the concept of "giving is receiving". For patients, they place their faith in doctors so as to pin their hopes on a brighter future when they no longer fight against the virus and return to their beloved. They give their unpleasant conditions of health to get treatment from medical system and the belief of being rescued from death.

For doctors and healthcare workers in this battle, they devote their time and effort to serving our country. They leave homes behind to protect their families and that of others from the virus. They have been working without respite because they are assigned to provide care and have responsibilities for thousands of lives. They sacrifice themselves to bring others back to life. What will they receive after all ? It is absolutely pure pleasure when announcing that someone can get discharged from the hospital. But what if they have to deliver bad news to their patients, what if " we tried our best" is never ever enough to soothe the pain ? In VTV's film, when the midwife tested positive for COVID 19, I wonder if there was any encouragement could truly raise her up at that time. Doctors' obligation is to make patients rest assured under any circumstances, but, as it turns out, what keeps them motivated through the long road ahead paved with obstacles and adversities.

This writing is a thankful letter to frontline healthcare workers, the embodiment of tenacity, dedication and compassion as well as those who support and contribute to repelling this pandemic. This horrible period of time owe them more than a promise of gathering with their loved ones. Hopefully, when this epidemic comes to an end, it is time for all of them to fulfill their expectations.
