A poem by Teagan Barry: ‘Family, Friends and First Responders’

Thursday, April 30, 2020

Family are there for each other

Friends support each other

First responders care for everyone

Everyone takes care of everyone

Viruses don’t pull us apart

They bring us together

We all take on new challenges together

And create solutions as a result

We all support one another

Everyone goes in together

Everyone gets out together

Teamwork is key

We’re all in this together

Together we’ll take it on

Together we are united
