Remembering The 500,000+ Lives We've Lost To COVID
On this edition of Your Call, we're remembering those we've lost to COVID-19 as the United States has surpassed 500,000 deaths -- that's half a million deaths in just one year. By now, most of us have lost a loved one or know someone who has. How are you thinking about the magnitude of these losses? Do you have a story to share or a loved one to remember? How are you marking this somber moment? Will there be a reckoning? What should that look like?
