Of all the nations in the world, we’ve had the most deaths from COVID-19. More than 400,000 Americans have died, roughly the same number killed in World War II. The virus is currently spreading out of control in most states across the country.
We can’t go on like this, especially with the prospect of widespread vaccination so close. Unless we start to get our priorities straight, the death toll could reach more than 550,000 by May.
If we ever want to get this virus under control, and get some semblance of our lives back, we have to start doing things differently, and our leaders need to help us make the collective sacrifices it will take to save the lives of our family, friends, neighbors and fellow citizens.
