Seattle: Make a joyful noise at 8 p.m. Thursday


The Seattle area is following the lead of several cities in Europe and urging residents to "make a joyful noise" to celebrate and thank those putting their lives on the line in the fight against the coronavirus.

It's happening at 8 o'clock every Thursday.

Kids will love this, even though it's a little close to bedtime for some.

Organizers are asking people to step outside (or maybe stand in an open door or window) and clap their hands, raise their voices, bang some pots and pans or whatever for you would represent a "joyful noise."

It's an effort at community solidarity and a way to recognize health-care workers, first responders and others who are working so hard right now. (And also seems like a good way for cooped-up or stressed people to blow off a little steam ... just saying.)
