To the current 749,000 dead

Your deaths aren’t in vain. There’s word of vaccines from Russia’s Sputnik-V to those currently being developed in America. I won’t lie, I’m a bit scared. School has started up again physically and more and more students and teachers are being quarantined. The fear of being alone through all of it is definitely the scariest. Hopefully, whereever any of you might be- faith permitting- you aren’t alone. I might have never known any of you by face or name, but you’re more than just a political statistic. To the parents gone, I pray for your children’s health- and for the kids with lives cut too short, you matter in hearnest. Your family and friends love you. And to those who were inbetween, it’s ok now.
