Honoring Our Beloved at Twilight at the Lincoln Memorial Along the Potomac

Biden, Harris honor COVID-19 victims at ceremony on eve of inauguration.

A recognition by the highest officials in this land that 400,000 people have died in the United States of Covid-19. However the future looks for us with a new administration taking their role in the White House tomorrow, we know that the level of dedication to this illness will be serious and appropriate. We know that from today going forward we will have a unified, focused leadership pushing to get help to all the states, all of the country, all of the people who are sick, who are dying, who need vaccines, who need comfort and support and empathy in their time of grief. Our sorrow unites us.

Scenes from a video speak to the loss and the ceremony to mark it.
