A video featuring the town’s different departments is sharing messages of support, good health, and a determination to beat the COVID-19 pandemic.
North Attleborough Police Officer Kristine Crosman posted “NA Town ‘essentials’” just a few hours ago and already it has been shared 50 times on social media. The video is a collection of photos of the police and fire departments, teachers, public works, electric department, and animal shelter employees, among others, who continue to work during the pandemic. There’s even some pictures of the town’s four-legged friends in the video. Crosman said she was inspired by a similar video done for the middle school students a few weeks ago.
“I figured it would be nice to make it town-wide,” said Crosman. “We all need a bit of positivity right now.”
In each photo, people hold signs with reminders to wash your hands, stay six feet apart, and stay home. There are also encouraging messages including “Hope,” “North Strong” and “We Got This.” Crosman said it took a week to get all the photos, some she took herself and others taken for her.
The video is set to the song “Be the Light” by Thomas Rhett with Chris Tomlinson, Keith Urban, Hillary, and Reba McEntire. Crosman said that the song has a very positive message, pointing to the lines “In a race that you can’t win, slow it down-Yeah, you only get one go around.”
“It just says to me- hey we can’t outrun this COVID thing, so enjoy this downtime that you have and find the positive in it.”
