Be a first responder

How heartening it was to see the heightened appreciation for first responders in the early stages of the pandemic lockdown, such as when Parisians applauded each evening while lights blinked on the Eiffel Tower to say “Merci.” 

Anyone considered a first responder, including emergency medical personnel, fire fighters, and police, deserves applause. A first responder is anyone designated and trained to respond to an emergency. At the time of the American Revolution, colonists known as minutemen were ready for military service on a minute’s notice. They were alert, caring citizens like you and me, committed to the cause of freedom.
