Stick together by keeping apart

America leads the world with nearly seven million cases with over 200,000 deaths. I recall what President Donald Trump had said early this year: "It's going to disappear. One day it's like a miracle - it will disappear." The United Kingdom has 400,000 cases and over 40,000 deaths. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, a Covid survivor, said in June, "This has been a disaster." And now, it's serious as the country is registering record number of infections.

The virus has killed the good and the bad, the brave and the cowards, the believers and the deniers. That's the point about the virus - it doesn't distinguish, it can and does kill anyone. Everyone needs to face the reality and wear a mask.

We must also remember the number of doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals who have died of it. Not all heroes ride horses into battle, some just take the subway.

Stick together by keeping apart. Smile even though no one can see it under your mask.
