HAWTHORNE, NJ - Across the borough, people have been largely confined to their homes while others continue to work in jobs deemed essential services: healthcare workers, first responders, grocery and restaurant workers, drivers, and more. To show their support for those working on the "front lines" of the pandemic, residents have made visual displays to try to lift the spirits of those who pass by. Chalk art on sidewalks and driveways have become welcome sights around town, even being encouraged by Mayor Goldberg in his weekly letters. Signs thanking healthcare workers and those in the essential services have also sprung up, along with some bearing the slogan "Hawthorne Strong".
Homemade drawings and the globally-recognized rainbow symbol of hope during COVID 19 appear in the windows of some homes. Admist the flags at half-staff, blue ribbons have also appeared, showing support and catching hopeful Spring breezes, carrying the promise that better days lay ahead.
