America has surpassed the losses the nation suffered in World War I over a year and a half, with COVID-19 losses in just three and a half months.
But the nation is moving on, accepting a loss that will reach 200,000 by Labor day, and likely a third to a half million by the end of 2020.
Most people are tired of sacrifice, and Donald Trump and his crazy followers are clearly not interested in using face masks, engaging in social distancing, or denying themselves any pleasures, whatsoever.
So the thought of death as something that is to be ignored, and using the argument that people die every day, is ignoring the reality that we have become a nation which no longer values the elderly. We are forgetting that one day those of the population who are younger, and have lost concern about their parents, grandparents, and others of older age, are showing a total lack of respect for age, and what these older people have contributed to this nation and its successes.
Death has, sadly, become a cheap commodity, even for those who claim false religiosity, but are not serious in preserving life!
