There have been two recent journalistic gems in the newspaper regarding St. Louis fighting the pandemic. The first was "Teaming up in the fight against against COVID-19" (Oct. 8).  Thanks to sports writer Stu Durando for explaining how health care workers benefited from their student-athlete experience. It was an interesting connection to see how the discipline of sports provided these professionals with compassion. Durando connected the dots with such a seamless expression. A real story about hope and tragedy.

The second was music critic Kevin Johnson's "Bottoms Up Blues Gang jumps off the 'corona-coaster,' taking a break until spring" (Oct. 7). Nothing will stop St. Louis Blues roots from sprouting. Eric McSpadden is a musical gem. May he return as strong as ever. What a wonderful connection between Jeremy Segel-Moss and Bennie Smith. Smith is a true light that will always shine.

We are St. Louis Strong.
