Mass Death By Public Policy: We Are All Grieving

Mass Death By Public Policy: We Are All Grieving--- Trump

The hard truth: Trump's abject failure on the pandemic, coupled with the subsequent failure of "an ineducable country" to learn from it, has doomed us to a long, tough road back. Nowhere are the horrors upon us more brutally clear than among besieged medical workers, many of whom have written eloquently on "the suffering of both the living and the dead." Describing the virus as "the bodily manifestations of inequality" in this country, a young doctor at New York's Bellevue Hospital finds herself not wanting to be "soothed so much as believed...longing for the horror and devastation of this crisis to be seen and acknowledged for what it really is."
