D.C. firefighter uses bagpipes to give a welcome pause from pandemic

Good News Notes:

The lone bagpiper, dressed in blue jeans, a flannel shirt and a baseball cap, stood beneath a flagpole in front of a hospital. He played “God Bless America.”

Five nurses in scrubs listened nearby, one lying on her back in the green grass, soaking in the sun. They work at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center in Olney, in the intensive care unit, ground zero for hospitals treating patients with COVID-19.

The break on a Saturday afternoon lasted the length of six songs before the nurses went back inside, back onto the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, and Jim Mazzara, a firefighter in the District, headed off to deliver another moment of peace to another group of people in need of a smile.”
