National COVID-19 Remembrance

There will be a national day of remembrance in honor of all the fellow Americans we have lost due to the coronavirus this year on October 4th. There will be a moment of silence at 1pm ET. This event will also call attention to the inadequate, and I would contend incompetent, national response to this global pandemic. 20,000 empty chairs will be set out at the Ellipse in Washington, DC in honor of the 200,000 lives that we have lost. Here is some more info from their official event website:

Join us to remember those who have died, to honor survivors, frontline, and essential workers, and to demand that elected officials do more to develop a national plan to combat the physical, mental, and economic threats from COVID-19.

These are our grandparents, our parents, our siblings, children, coworkers, and neighbors. We are all at risk. No one is immune from this pandemic. This crisis is not over.
