I woke up today to the numbers. The numbers of people dying. DYING. For so many of us, we are just being asked to stay home, to wash our hands, sanitize and use common sense. It seems like a distant threat. I don't know anyone personally who has died from this, so it is easy to feel like it is not real.
Did you know that 790 people DIED in NYC last night. LAST NIGHT. It's real. Really freaking real.
My nurse and physician friends and family, my first responder friends, my grocery store and other essential worker friends...You are the ones bearing witness to the reality and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Stay safe, know you are thought of every day and loved
