Short for Solidarity!

A friend in the nail community works in healthcare and posted a few days ago that she was asked to trim her nails down. She said that cried a bit but knew it was the best thing to do for her patients and herself. Tonight, she spoke about how she and her kids have to remain apart at home for the duration, to keep them all safe.

I cannot imagine not being able to hug my loved ones for months like this. Yet she still shows up to care for her patients and making our community laugh every chance she gets.
She is amazing. She is a hero. She is Delanie.

I wish there was something huge that I could do for her to make this situation all better. But that would take a miracle.

I figured maybe a little thing like this might help and show her that I am grateful for all that she does in the world.

I've filed off my long nails and will wear them short for the duration. Won't you join me in this?

Short for Solidarity!
