Saddest Quote of the Week – February 27, 2021

“Today we mark a truly grim, heartbreaking milestone: 500,071 dead.  That’s more Americans who have died in one year in this pandemic than in World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War combined.  That’s more lives lost to this virus than any other nation on Earth.  But as we acknowledge the scale of this mass death in America we remember each person and the life they lived.  They’re people we knew.  They’re people we feel like we knew.  Read the obituaries and the remembrances.  The son who called his mom every night just to check in, the father’s daughter who lit up his world, the friend who was always there, the nurse who made her patients want to live.”

President Joe Biden, on the COVID-19 death toll reaching the half million mark in the United States
