As more are afflicted, we still have no national plan in place, no national response, and national leadership is leaving it up to individual states to try and get a handle on this pandemic which continues to grow.
Yet the President and VP keep telling us what a wonderful job they are doing--while defunding testing, not pushing to extend emergency unemployment, and trying to eliminate health coverage for our citizens.
This is not a time to merely look at "numbers." It is time to realize that there is a person, a family, a mother, a father, a brother, a sister -- flesh and blood fellow human beings associated with those statistics. It is not only a time for competence; it is a time for compassion.
If the effort was coordinated across the country;
If our leaders would listen to those whom have expertise and experience;
If our leaders would show a bit of compassion and understanding;
If our leaders would lead by example;
Maybe, just maybe, the United States would have a better handle on this crisis.
I wish I could be angry, but I am sad.
