For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die. . . . . a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn . . .
This past week our nation surpassed the 100,000 mark of persons who have died from the COVID-19 pandemic. This morning I listened to a New York Times podcast that marked this awful milestone by sharing the names – and a little of the story – of 100 of those individuals. I was moved by this memorial effort.
