New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson wrote a powerful empowering letter addressed to all the medical staff that included doctors, nurses and others involved who are working tirelessly to help the people suffering from the Corona Virus by risking their lives. Kane Williamson has thanked the health care workers for the selflessness of their service. He also says that the country is behind them.
“Events of the past few days have made it clear we’re living through a health crisis the likes of which we’ve never seen. There will no doubt be times in the coming days when the scale of what we’re facing will seem overwhelming,” Williamson wrote.
Being a professional cricketer, Kane Williamson understands what pressure is. The pressure is obviously more for the player as he is also the captain of the Black Caps Cricket team. However, Williamson suggests that the real pressure is something that the medical aid workers undergo. He explains that the pressure he feels is while playing a game and that the real pressure is one felt by health care workers who are trying to save the lives of people.
“We’re so grateful you have our backs. People talk about the pressure sportsmen and women are under to perform, but the truth is we get to do something we love every day for a living. We play games. Real pressure is working to save lives. Real pressure is going into work each day while putting your own personal safety on the line for the good of others,” Williamson said in his letter.
In New Zealand, so far 262 coronavirus cases have been reported. Globally, 4.62,800 people have contracted the deadly virus that has left 20,922 dead.
Williamson continued, “It’s an enormous responsibility that can only be carried out by the best kind of people: those who put the greater good ahead of all else. As Black Caps, we know how amazing it feels to have the support of a country behind you.”
Williamson signed off with, “In that same vein, we need you to know you’re not alone. We want you to know that there’s a whole country behind you. We will get through this and you are a big reason why.”
