WB1172 Outside, Inside – is a story that celebrates essential workers and the community coming together to face the challenges of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Something strange happened in 2020, just before the seasons changed. Everyone who was outside… went inside. Outside, it was quieter and different. Inside, we laughed, we cried, we baked, we exercised, we kept in touch and we grew. We remembered to protect the ones we love and love the ones who protect us. We watched with admiration and respect as key workers risked their own wellbeing to help others. We knew that the seasons would change, and spring would come again.
