Tag: COVID-19. COVID memorial

I remember a heavy conversation I had recently with a coworker about COVID-19. We talked about how in our everyday life, and in conversations with people, we were struggling to really voice the magnitude of loss. I mean, how do you grieve half a million people? How do you understand the amount of loss, how do you even begin to process it?  When Sept. 11 happened, we carried the loss of almost 3,000 people for months – for years – and it was (and is) so heavy. So how do we, as a community, begin to mourn our loss from COVID, with a number so big we cannot comprehend it?
