A heart as big as Liverpool

A friend who has been watching the self-sacrificing commitment of Liverpool care workers – left without adequate protective clothing but determined to say alongside elderly people in their care, dying from Covid 19  –sent me a link to this song entitled “A heart as big as Liverpool”.  It’s a song which is an encouragement to look out for others,  certainly an attribute  of communities like Liverpool – where people have  always faced tragedy, hardship, and suffering by looking out for one another – but true in so many parts of the UK today as we face such testing and challenging times.
