The Year of Years (3.11.2020)

Digital reflections from when life (as we knew it) ended on March 11th 2020

This won’t be a long piece, but before anything else, I just want to say that one of my happiest moments was bringing my parents together this Valentines Day. I’m not sure why but my concern for my parents’ health (i.e., avoiding infection) increased significantly after the Halloween spike. I’m truly thankful that I can — at the time of this writing — still call my mommy & daddy and hear their voices, their laughter, their ideas, their memories, their signature phrases at the beginning & end of conversations, their love…

I love you

I love you mom

I love you dad

#COVID19 Anniversary address — President Biden’s first address to the country

“Every adult will be eligible to get a shot beginning May one [5/1/2021]. …we will release new tools that make it easier to find where to get a vaccine.

Beating this virus depends on national unity. What we do together as fellow Americans.”

Here’s to hoping we have our independence from #COVID19 by July 4th

I'm passionate about making a tangible difference in the lives of others, & that's something I have the opportunity to do a professor & researcher.
