VIDEO: St. John’s, NL pays touching tribute to all essential workers
In a touching and unified display of thanks, residents of St. John’s, NL took to the streets last night (Sunday, March 29) to ring bells, bang pots, and honk their horns in honour of all essential workers on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19. Leading the effort was a chorus of ships in St. John’s Harbour, all sounding their horns in a hauntingly beautiful display of gratitude.
A press release from the City of St. John’s called on residents to safely step outside, while maintaining physical distance from others, and contribute “joyful noise” to a collective thank you. Danny Breen, Mayor of St. John’s, is quoted in the release as saying: “We want to send our thanks and support to all essential workers. To do that, we don’t want people to congregate as social distancing is so important at this time. However, we can ensure that these workers know we are standing with them while we are apart.”
