In 19 1/2 years in Vietnam, we lost a reported 58,225 lives.

It was one of the great tragedies of this nation.

In four months of this corona pandemic, we have lost a reported 140,000 lives.

We cannot let these lives become just a number. We must try to keep it in perspective.

We do not know where or when it is going to end?

1. I've often wondered about this, where is the outrage?

I think partially itís because many of those dying today are older. I know more young people are being affected nowadays and donít know the current age distribution but it certainly hits the old more. We can see the thinking in those rethugs who think the old people should be willing to die for the sake of the economy. But itís more than just that. And I really donít remember anyone denying the number of deaths. There were certainly arguments justifying them but not pretending it wasnít really happening.
