From the Washinton DC National Cathedral: Today, Monday, February 22,
"The Cathedral will toll the Bourdon bell 500 times, once for every 1,000 American COVID-19 deaths. The toll is expected to take about 45-50 minutes."
Half-million lives lost.
500,000. Some of our friends, family, or aquaintances. Maybe they were separated by a degree or two or even six. Imagine for a moment
The city of Atlanta or Miami being wiped off the map. Those cities have about the same number of people living there that have been claimed by the virus that the previous administration mismanaged (and I say that with extreme kindness). Carrying all 500,000 people would require a caravan of 9,804 buses that would stretch 94.7 miles
This dark winter of our lives cannot end soon enough.
