This enemy is much more terrifying than that opposing us in during WW2. It is non negotiable. It cannot be beaten into submission it has to be eradicated. During WW2, the vast majority of the population played an active part in defeating the enemy. Either as members of the armed forces or working in aid of them. Today we play a very passive role and can feel almost helpless as the action of the virus continues. Those of us who live through these times will have endured something much more difficult than WW2. but will remember with pride how we gave our support. Each Thursday evening at 8 o'clock we opened our doors and windows and clapped our hands in appreciation of the NEW FEW. Those who took great risks on our behalf. Those who are in the front line. Nurses, doctors, cleaners, deliverymen. We applauded those who complied with the need to self isolate and were unable to hug members of their families. In years to come, we will remember them too.
