COVID-19: Death Toll Surpasses 200 Thousand In The United States

It pains me to know that in the United States alone, about 200-thousand people have lost their lives due to COVID-19. How did this happen? Well, actually I can pretty much figure out how it all happened but I won't pass judgement here.

Instead, I will continue to mourn each individual because I often wonder if their death was really necessary. It wasn't. Oh sure, there are those who have underlying medical conditions and factors that may have attributed to their death, but again, did they have to die?

My mind reflects on the gruesome images of bodies lined up along the walls of hospitals across the country, trucks turned into freezers to store the deceased, and the endless tears of family members who couldn't even spend time with their loved ones during their last moments on earth. Sad. People of all races, colors and creeds. People of all ages, from infants to centenarians. People of all academic and socio-economic backgrounds. Men and women. Just sad.

About 200-thousand lives lost in the U.S. to a virus that hit us like a ton of bricks. But it didn't have to, and they didn't have to die either.
