In Remembrance of the 500,000

 

In Remembrance of the lives lost in the US during the COVID Pandemic
February 22, 2021


Today I honor and remember those who have passed during this COVID Pandemic. My thoughts, hugs and prayers go to those families and friends who lost a loved one. 

In January 2020, Reuters reported --"The worldwide coronavirus death toll surpassed 2 million on Friday, according to a Reuters tally, as nations around the world are trying to procure multiple vaccines and detect new COVID-19 variants.

'Behind this staggering number are names and faces: the smile now only a memory, the seat forever empty at the dinner table, the room that echoes with the silence of a loved one,' United Nations chief Antonio Guterres said in a video statement."

We must resolve to do everything we can in order to eliminate this disease murdering our world citizens.

Thank you to all those workers and volunteers in our communities who take care of the sick, show up to work, pray, offer meals to hungry families and keep us rolling along, offering hope and light in this world.

Sincerely,

Janet
