We build war memorials and remembrance sites. It’s been a year of this pandemic, and over 500,000 American lives lost. Half a million, and still counting. More than we lost in both World Wars combined.
I hope the Biden administration will think about a way to mark this for the future. Maybe a national day of remembrance.
A few minutes, every year, when we all go silent and remember how much we’ve lost, and how much of that loss could have been avoided. So we can do better next time.
