A COVID-19 Sunday in America


It is an October Sunday in America.

The MLB playoffs are underway.

The NFL is playing football, but two games are postponed due to COVID-19.

The President is in the hospital with COVID-19.

745 Americans died of COVID-19 yesterday bringing the total number of American deaths to near 209,000.

As we grapple for normalcy, we are reminded at every step that we are in the middle of a pandemic. It is not a hoax. It is not fake news. I think those who did not believe that COVID-19 was real can now, finally, understand that the disease and the threat are real. 

My recommendations:

Pray for those who are afflicted that they will recover.

Wear a mask when in public. I think the mis-information about masks not helping or providing any protection has been sufficiently discounted. As the disease has progressed and our understanding of its transmission, the recommendations have evolved. Do not rely upon old information just because it suits how you want to believe.

Be responsible for yourself. What is do or do not do is no one's responsibility except yourself!

Be well and I hope you continue to be well.
