‘It affects virtually nobody.’
— Donald J. Trump, September 21, 2020

We need to remember that while government officials and politicians toss around numbers, those numbers represent American citizens — men, women and children — who died from this deadly disease. Their families and friends need to feel a virtual embrace, a national group hug, from all of us every day. Out of respect for the fallen, please wear a mask and practice social distancing to slow the spread of this killer virus.
