Vlog: Clapping for NHS: Why? (personal thoughts)

“So.. people are clapping….. 8pm on a thursday…3rd week in a row..
where people are clapping for the NHS staff.. ”

Last week I was doing gardening.. and heard the sound of clapping..
and I was overcome by an overwhelming feeling.

“..I thought about why.. we are clapping..
I know we are showing our appreciation for..
the NHS staff and all other staff..
and all the people working to keep Life going in the Country..”

“..All of us.. every single one of us is affraid..
..scared shit out of our minds..
and we are scared of Death!
That this disease (coronaVirus) might catch us..
or our loved ones, or our friends, or us..
and we might die..!

..We’ve been told to stay indoors.. in the safety of our houses..
lot of people are doing it.
literally holding on to our lives.. in our houses..

..and hoping that the medical staff of the country will save us
literally our lives.. all of our lives.. are in their hands.!

You might not feel like that.. but…
if anything happens to any one of us..
we are really want to go to the hospital..
and be at the mercy of one of these Medical staff members..
and we hope they are going to look after us…
and save our lives..!

And it is that scary
and it’s that thought
or lives.. every single one of ours.. depends
in the hands of the medical staff at the moment..

because we don’t have the capability to keep our selves alive
if something bad happens to us..
Hopefully it doesn’t..

I think if we really examine the deeper feelings..
it’s that overwhelming sense..
of charity that we want..
the fact that we are at the mercy..
of not just whatever is happening in the world but..
at the hands and mercy of the medical staff..
that we will deped of them to save our lives..

That is very scary and it’s a very dependant state
. An that’s why there’s overwhelming feeling
to know that each one of us feels it
whether we are aware of it or not

So when we are clapping
I suppose we are pleading to medical staff
to keep working
to keep us safe..
and to save us.. if that happens..

Those are my thoughts..
as to why we are clapping..
And it’s quite overwhelming feeling to know that..!

Thank you NHS
