Tulsa Thanks You
There is no group of people who have done more to save the lives of our neighbors than our health care heroes. They have gone to work every day, working with the very worst cases, serving not just as a point of medical care but as a human connection for patients afflicted by a virus that isolates its victims. When family members couldn’t be there to hold a hand or offer an encouraging word, you were there. When a family had to say their goodbyes to someone they loved more than anyone in the world, you held the phone for the patient. And this is not work that you shed with your PPE at the end of a shift. We know it stays with you.
And we hope you know how thankful this community is for you and your work. Over the last month, Tulsans in all parts of our city have been sending in short videos to let you know how much they appreciate you.
— Mayor G.T. Bynum
