Walking may be the rediscovered pastime during the COVID pandemic. Some appear tentative at best, as if they’re on a slippery surface. Others cut a brisk pace with expressions of determination. COVID messages are popping up on sidewalks, paths and streets, including:
April Distance Brings May Existence
Life Happens, Coffee Helps
In This Together
Please Help Each Other
Happiness is an Inside Job
Be Positive, Be Kind
Hope Is Not canceled
A Kid’s Version of the U.S. Flag (Old Glory never looked so good)
A Hopscotch Pattern with the Message Give it a Try!
A Smiling Sun with the Message, Shine!
Tough Times Don’t Last, Tough People Do
In This Together – Six Feet Apart
Kindness is Contagious
The Internet is for Social Distancing
Health Care Workers: You Are A-mazing
Near a Hospital: Hail to the Front Line
Cover Your Face Like You’re Robbing a Bank
A Smiling Fried Egg: Keep Your Sunny Side Up
Regardless of the walking pace or the messages, here’s to a brighter and healthier tomorrow in the St. Croix Valley and beyond.
