COVID OUTCOME OFTEN NOT ROSY
Greetings. I am a voting constituent in rural west Texas. Earlier I sent a letter with recent Covid comments from your peeps in Congress and the Administration. Because I would like to be fair and balanced, I thought it’d be good to send the view from the other side. You know, the side that has empathy and deep personal connection to the tragedy that continues in our country. And that you and yours are trying so hard to convince us is not real. Or cause for concern. "Unfortunately it did dominate our lives didn't it? It dominated [Broadway star Nick Cordero] family's lives and my family's lives. I guess we "let it" - like it was our choice??," [wife Amanda Kloots] wrote on Instagram. "Unfortunately not everyone is lucky enough to spend two days in the hospital. I cried next to my husband for 95 days watching what COVID did to the person I love. It IS something to be afraid of." And... "Nobody is looking at him thinking he (Trump) is strong or brave," [Katie Coelho] said. "He's weak because my husband [Jonathan Coelho] fought Covid, my husband wanted to come home and he deserved it, and this man is using this as a political propaganda to divide the nation when we're already so broken." "He could have done so much good with coming out and saying Covid is scary and I'm sorry to all of these families but we're going to get through this as a nation and as a country and he chose not to." (CNN interview) Lastly... Dr. Craig Spencer, an epidemiologist who famously survived Ebola in 2014 and director of Global Health in Emergency Medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center in New York City, once deemed the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, tweeted Monday. "'Don't let it dominate your life' you said! 210k Americans have died.” “We held their hands & called their families over grainy video connections so they could see their last breaths. Your lack of empathy is the single greatest threat to the American people. You have failed us." Do you have anything to say to these American citizens?
