I feel really glad,
Tho I am NOT a First Responder or Health Worker myself,
That you made this work of art,
And then titled it
"More resources, less clapping".
That is because you've totally captured what's going on now.
Praising our heroes,
Giving them accolades and stuff
To go to war
Or do something we ourselves do not wanna do,
When they fail or don't measure up,
Or come back looking hideous,
We turn and give them hell
Or somehow neglect what it is they need
To still do their jobs well
And heal instead of hurt.
That is my perception of not just the First Responder situation,
But also how soldiers in the past have been treated
When they came back from war
Scarred in more ways than what our naked eyes could see.
And maybe regarding soldiers,
This very thing still happens today. : /
I'm also glad that in your description,
"Don't send them to battle without a shield".
Why do we even think it's okay
To treat our "heroes" like trash
Or just not do our part to meet their needs? D:
Being a "hero" is hard!!!
What a fantastic way to honor the heroes of this pandemic! This is an absolutely flawless drawing. I love your optimism and am also hopeful that we all will learn something through this chaos. Well done and well said.
this is beautiful and touching and very true... Like a friend said to our local government: "we don't want an extra week off, or a financial bonus for the individuals... we want more workers, more equipment, more chances to save lives"...
