I think Time Magazine's choices for Heroes of the Year, Athlete of the Year, and Entertainer of the Year are all worthy of attention. Now that Time has uploaded the video for Heroes of the Year, I plan on sharing that next as a pandemic update. Stay tuned.Without any further ado, I'm sharing Doctor Mike Reveals TIME Heroes of the Year 2021: Vaccine Scientists.
For those of us lucky enough to live in wealthy countries with access to these top-shelf vaccines, it has made all the difference. The miracle workers behind the COVID-19 vaccines are the TIME Heroes of the Year not only because they gave the world a defense against a pathogen, but also because the manner of that astonishing achievement guards more than our health: they channeled their ambitions to the common good, talked to one another and trusted in facts.I like Heroes of the Year better than Guardians of the Year, which Frontline health workers, Dr. Fauci, Porche Bennett-Bey and racial-justice organizers won last year. Too bad they couldn't have won people of the year, like The Ebola Fighters did in 2014, but I think this is still appropriate recognition. Congratulations!
Stay tuned for posts about the Athlete and Entertainer of the Year. In the meantime, here is the cover featuring the vaccine scientists, heroes of the year.
