David Muir...Orphans without their parents...COVID DEATHS

Across the U.S., young people are showing their resilience even as they face a new day without a parent.

More than 250,000 children have lost a parent or a primary caregiver to COVID-19. Yet, the voices of those adults, taken too soon, still echo.

For Tre and Jenny Burrows, it's their mother, Cindy Dawkins. For A.J. Arellano, he hears dad Alan at every football game.

"I just know that he's watching me. I think it's helps me with playing better," Arellano told ABC News' David Muir, the anchor of "World News Tonight."

For several months, Muir followed five families -- including the Arellanos and the Burrowses -- as they faced unspeakable pain and tapped into unmatched strength.

1. Surprised a major news network covered this.

It was well done. Maybe it will prompt some people to take this disease more seriously.

2. I've often wondered why this hasn't been more personalized

by the network news shows. They’ve yammered on for days about a female guard and her boyfriend convict, but the millions of stories about families grieving from Covid loss are as silent as Dubya was about the deaths of our soldiers.
