Frontliners Our New Heroes
Behind the masks of bravery
Our heroes are the frontliners - the health authorities, military and police personnel, journalists, food delivery drivers, government employees, bank employees, janitors, garbage truck collectors, and traffic personnel. They are the people who choose to remain in the frontlines.
This COVID-19 pandemic calls for an understanding of each other’s stories. We all have different stories of how we are dealing with the crisis. For our frontliners, their journey to work and while doing their work feel like being in a battle with the enemy, only that they do not have superpowers.
A nurse in a public hospital also fears for the health and that of her family. Walking home at night makes her worried that she might have contracted the disease.
Our COVID-19 frontliners and the fictional superheroes we know are both brave and passionate. They may not have superpowers like that of Superman, but their knowledge, skills, and bravery are what make them heroes.
Fighting against COVID-19 is not an easy feat. It requires grit. Some of the COVID-19 frontliners in Cebu share where they get their strength.
