This poem was written by a 12 year old girl so that the doctors, nurses and first responders know that she is thinking about them.

Here is her poem:

Clap - dedicated to our warriors

People are clapping

Outside my window

They're standing 6ft apart

But their movements the same

 

Clapping together for the survivors

For the lost,

For the people that risk their life,

So another can live theirs.


We clap as one,

To get through the pair

To give hope to our warriors

Who were regular people yesterday

And the reason we fight now

 

They fight so we can survive

So we can live

So we can stand together

And hold hands as people

 

Not separated by a race

Or a gender

Who we love

Or what we support

 

We fight the same cause now,

And at 7:00

When our warriors go home or go to fight

We clap as people

And as people

We Survive
