A Million Lives Lost - And the Difference Between Good and Bad Intentions

 ("How Millions of Lives Might Have Been Saved From Covid -19")

This is a very sobering recitation of the mistakes we have made and misdirections we have taken in our responses to the clues these past two years. The best and the brightest in our scientific community struggling to follow the breadcrumbs. 

Yet, even so, with a different leader our story would have surely been one with far less misery and suffering. Someone who did not minimize what we faced, who did not treat wearing a mask as a scarlet letter, who did not find political gain in trying to eviscerate those whose only goal was to locate the necessary truths to give all of us the best chance at survival.

There is blame to be spread around as we edge ever closer to one million in our count of those who have succumbed in this country alone to Covid 19. 

But there is a world of difference between good and bad intention. Guilt and shame should attach only to the latter. 

To Mr. Trump.
