In between the extended circuit breaker and the uptick in cases, we've had a long couple of weeks - and we've got to salute our front liners, who have been working tirelessly even on weekends to keep us all healthy and safe. If you'd like to help lift the nation's spirits, consider joining Dick Lee's nationwide sing-a-long on Saturday, where he will lead everyone in a heartfelt rendition of "Home".
