Dear Docters, thank you for everything you have done for us and we have gone through so much hard things and we are thankful for everything. The coronavirus has changed our lives and yours to. It has changed our lives due to losing people and risking lives. Everyday docters have to risk their lives to save others. Docters can get coronavirus while trying to save someone else’s lives. And that is why we are thankful. Docters care about other people’s lives more than their own lives. I have been scared of the coronavirus because I was afraid of getting it. But If I do, i’m counting on you to find a cure. I will always trust docters especially when they are trying to save me. You guys make sacrifices everday to save people. Docters are insperation to many people becuase they save people and inspire others to care and save many people to make this world a better place. Once again, thank you for everything you have done for us. Sincerely, Julissa Garcia
