Happy new week my lovely readers, I hope you are well and taking care of yourselves. Sending my love and prayers to anyone going through a difficult time.
When I saw a post that Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 will be premiering their new seasons on the 30th of September I was all smiles. I am not a fan of television series but I will never trade Meredith’s smile and Vic Hughes and Montgomery’s friendship for anything.
Station 19 follows the lives of firefighters who live in Seattle and work for the Station 19 fire house. Whereas Grey’s Anatomy is a medical series about medical doctors who live in Seattle and work at Grey’s Sloan Memorial Hospital.
In Station 19 the firefighters had to attend assist many victims but they were in fear on contracting the virus. Tours around the firehouse were banned and the firefighters could not visit their loved ones.The pandemic has made the firefighters feel powerless and lonely.
Grey’s Anatomy always remind me that the world has been hit and affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The characters in these series wear masks and their stories are in the present and address different issues that have been brought about by the global pandemic. In Grey’s Anatomy, the hospital had to send some patients away and the admitted patients could not see their relatives who were not feeling well. The hospital staff could not spend time with their loved ones and Meredith and Koracick tested positive to COVID-19 whereas Chief Miranda Bailey lost her mother.
These two series made me appreciate the role of frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you happen to know a frontline worker, please tell them that you appreciate them.
