I cried with emotion whilst doing it.

Same...I thought the local travellers were outside the window galloping horses up the quiet road to start with so peered out...then I got a bit of elation thinking. Omg they have found a cure, we are all saved..


Then I remembered what I had saw on the news earlier about it and my heart sank..so i cried but clapped loudly.

Why does everyone get so competitive about these things? Show your gratitude in whatever way you can, you don't have to take part in weird little public shows.

Some numpty around here even let off a couple of fireworks. Weirdo.

I didn't go outside. Don't think anyone in our street did. Does not mean I don't respect the NHS wholeheartedly.

Whats the arguing about if you didnt you didnt

However a heck of a lot of the country did and it was a lovely thing to witness. Type in #NHS on instagram go on recent and look at the hundreds of videos. It makes us feel united in a time we need it and show our thanks to the true heroes

I'm not bothered about engaging in virtue signalling that ultimately doesn't help the NHS workers. It's self congratulatory and about making yourself feel better rather than showing support for the NHS and I can't abide it.

If you care about the NHS and you want to do something meaningful, there are options, this doesn't really achieve anything other than personal satisfaction.

I applauded them from my desk alongside my work colleagues. I applauded them for their bravery...for going in and doing the job they do everyday only this virus puts them at enormous risk day in and day out. Many of them canít even return to their families because of what they do. Many of us are safely tucked away at home in isolation..many of us go to work in fear of contacting it from a work colleague despite safety procedures in place. But these people go into work and help those affected...how brave is that.
What harm was it to applaud these people from the safety of your home...seriously.
