Amid the coronavirus pandemic, a handful of happy moments works like magic. Some of the viral videos are proof that no matter what, humanity is still alive and it is giving us the strength to go through the tough times. The Sikh community is known for its generous, helpful and determined nature. Whether it is a bushfire, Tsunami, earthquake, a pandemic or even generally, Sikh people always make sure that their services come in use for the needy. Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, they are leaving no stone unturned in terms of helping the people in need. They are distributing free food and masks to not just the frontline workers but also to the general public. To honour their good deed, Police cruisers in California circumambulated around the Riverside Sikh Gurdwara in Jurupa Valley and thanked the Sikh community in the most unique way.
Showing gratitude for their noble deed of delivering food and masks to frontline workers and the public in general, the police officers drove around the Gurudwara with blaring sirens. In their own way, they thanked the Sikh community for helping the needy amid the pandemic. Videos of the thank you parade from California are going viral on social media. Twitter is flooded with gratitude and happiness. Take a look at the videos:
