“Angels Among Us” in A Capella: Our Salute to All Frontline Workers

by

Thank You. Two simple words, but loaded with so much warmth and meaning.

From videos of thank you helpers” on YouTube and other social media sites, to Google’s special doodles for all health workers, here’s our song dedication from Country Thang Daily – “Angels Among Us.”

Originally by Alabama, the A Capella version elevated the song’s heart message. Home Free bassist Tim Foust and Chris Rupp have done an awesome collaboration for this amazing song.

May this beautiful rendition also remind us that there’s a God who watches over us and that we may learn to believe again in his divine protection.

Real Life Angels Among Us

Death toll rises and while we only see numbers, we could almost imagine the depth of fear, anxiety, loneliness, and grief of those dying in their hospital beds. What’s more heartbreaking is the fact that they have to die alone, away from their loved ones. The only people who could stand with them in their final breaths would be the nurses and doctors. And here we’d like to express our sincere thanks.

In Vancouver, an intensive-care nurse held a dying patient’s hand while his family bid their goodbyes over the phone. Following the incident, Doug Rae, the nurse, wrote a poem.

“Today I held his hand
tears behind my plastic face mask.
This protective suit I’m wearing
cannot shield humanity.”
– Doug Rae

Another nurse in Chicago named Shari Para did the same to a sixty-nine-year-old woman patient at Ingalls Memorial Hospital. She told her nurse that she’s afraid. Without any hesitation, Para held out her hand for the woman to grasp and prayed with her.

“I had to be her loved one because she didn’t have anybody with her to tell her that it was going to be OK.”
– Shari Para

Working around the clock in hospitals, our health workers have also assumed the role of being the bridge of information between patients and their families. More than that, they now have to become stand-ins for those in quarantine so the patients won’t feel more isolated.

We are ALL Frontline Workers

Although we have primarily complimented those who are taking good care of people in hospitals, we don’t overlook the fact that each one of us has played a role to help during this season of global crisis. Having said that, let’s not shy away from giving each other a verbal pat in the back.

At the dark end of the road
Someone light the way with just a single ray of hope.

Thank you to all business people, celebrities, politicians, churches, and all who are able for their donations. Those went to research, vaccine development, medical supplies, and food.

Thank you to all the servicemen and women who work in groceries, food stores, pharmacy, and deliveries. You must be also worried about your health, but you need to serve people with their basic necessities.

Thank you to all law enforcers who helped keep order on the roads and for being a reliable reinforcement when needed.

Thank you to all factory workers and farmers for their labors of love. They have produced medical and protective suits, and have kept us fed while we’re all in the comfort of our homes.

They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give

Thank you to all government officials who are doing everything they can to reconcile the balance between their constituents’ health and the concern for economic stability.

Thank you to all conscientious users of social media for the efficient spread of factual and helpful information. Your voices have also been effective to bring forward worthwhile advocacies.

Finally, thank you to all volunteers who went out of their way to help those in dire need using the meager resources they have. They understood that we don’t have to hang everything on the government’s shoulders.

They wear so many faces,
Show up in the strangest places
And grace us with their mercies in our time of need.
