    Kane Williamson's open letter to frontline medical staff

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/a...eMHYxSLTvjT9sM

    Dear doctors, nurses and caregivers,

    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.

    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.

    Every day over the next weeks and months you and your colleagues will be asked to do that.

    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 Blackcaps, we know how amazing it feels to have the support of a country behind you.
    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.

    On behalf of a grateful country, thank you.

    Kane Williamson, Blackcaps captain

    Joe Root also tried to write an open letter to frontline medical staff but couldn't get past 50-99 words.

    Nah, story I heard was that as Joe Root was about to write his letter he tripped over the World Cup that he'd carelessly left lying around.

    Joe Root accidentally coming into contact with the World Cup does sound familiar.

    Good gesture on Williamson's part.

    Root is a clown.

    Welcome and inspirational change for a sportsman, not like Warne who joined the dickhead club who use the crisis to abuse our prime minister.
    If you nick it walk

    As we look to the future, we may need a national nursing reserve corps to mobilize the deployment of nursing services in times of emergencies and epidemics. And we now need to be open to the ways in which our own biases, assumptions, and traditions may blind us to men and women ready and willing to serve at this very moment.

    To be more precise, he felt this would be so unlike me once he touched the 70-79 word count.

    Should be more careful, thats the only world cup that was given and not won.

    I’m pretty disappointed no one has recycled the “other captain tried to write one and it came out this way” joke yet. I’d been hoping for some zingers in these dark zingerless days.
