Giving Thanks

The U.S. Navy’s top aerobatics team were in the sky flying over certain parts of the nation last Tuesday.  Chicagoans were able to see the six F/A-18 Hornets at 11.45pm for 15 minutes.  Thanks for the Blue Angels this was a wonderful way of saying thank you to healthcare workers in the region.

As well, Michelle Obama gave a message of thanks to local frontline workers. The transcript of her words was shared by the University of Chicago’s Medical Center and read:

“Hi, everybody. It’s Michelle Obama, and I just want to take a few minutes to let you all know how profoundly grateful Barack and I are for the heroic work that all of you are doing right now in Chicago. We know that you all are facing overwhelming challenges; you’re working around the clock, spending long hours away from your families, and making impossible decisions day after day. You’re soothing terrified patients, consoling heartbroken loved ones, summoning every ounce of the compassion and strength that you’ve got.”
