23/3/2020. 50 Cuban doctors and nurses fly to Italy, into what was called a warzone, to care for COVID19 patients. By then, 23 Italian doctors had already died from it sad #heros

A local supermarket always has some college students working weekends, and they then move on to other jobs after finishing college.

Due to their new jobs being on hold, a number have come back to work in the supermarket. Despite the fact that financially they would be at least as well off on the Covid19 payment. Because they want to help, not sit at home in safety

Really small and probably self indulgent to say but tonight after the clap a bunch of our neighbours sang happy birthday to our twins - I had mentioned we had to cancel their party and that they were really struggling to understand what was going on and had been upset. It really touched me.

Lovely @JoeExotic, so thoughtful

A 10 year old boy in Cork, Ireland with a respiratory condition is an "Honorary Garda".

Due to his condition, he had been housebound for a month before his birthday.

On his birthday, members of Fire Brigade, 2 Policing Units and the Garda Dog Unit gathered outside his home and sang Happy Birthday to him. He was thrilled.

Gave my neighbour who works in supermarket 30 rubber gloves and she left flowers on my doorstep.

Met a lovely young man who volunteers with Order of Malta. He's now spending his days delivering medications as a volunteer.
