A través de su cuenta de Instagram, la aerolínea Southwest Airlines, retrató el momento en el que docenas de profesionales de la salud abordaron un avión para ayudar a sus colegas de Nueva York, ciudad epicentro del coronavirus en Estados Unidos.

A la fecha, ‘La Gran Manzana’ cuenta con al menos 1.900 muertos causados por el brote del COVID-19, según su gobernador Andrew Cuomo.

«Estas almas valientes luchan en medio de un tremendo riesgo y exposición, poniendo constantemente las necesidad de los demás por encima de las suyas. Su sacrificio desinteresado es un faro de luz durante un tiempo tan oscuro en nuestro mundo, y ninguna cantidad de gratitud y alabanza será suficiente», dice el post.

Finalmente, enviaron un mensaje de agradecimiento a todos los profesionales de salud que trabajan en medio de la emergencia por el nuevo coronavirus.

«Esta foto lo encarna todo: valentía, coraje y sacrificio. Si fuera fácil, todos lo harían, pero sabemos que ese no es el caso».

While so many of us continue to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, no one knows what is happening quite like our medical professionals. These brave souls soldier on in the midst of tremendous risk and exposure, constantly putting the needs of others above their own. Their selfless sacrifice is a beacon of light during such a dark time in our world, and no amount of gratitude and praise would ever be enough. Because of their courage, our family, our friends, our coworkers, our neighbors, and more have a fighting chance. More than a dozen healthcare professionals from Atlanta answered the call this past Friday evening to serve in New York. This photo embodies it all: bravery, courage, and sacrifice. If it were easy, everyone would do it, but we know that is not the case. Thankfully, this group and countless others do it each day, and for that we are forever grateful and in their debt. So to all the first responders, medical professionals, healthcare workers, and anyone else on the front lines today and every day to keep us safe, thank you. #SouthwestHeart (📸 Southwest Employee Dayartra E.)
