I was thinking that I should celebrate tonight, but then it hit me. Nearly 18k people in Massachusetts and 600k people in the USA and millions world wide lost their lives to this awful virus. Many are still suffering from side effects, and we all have had our lives turned upside down and inside out.
Today I will think about the Dr.’s and nurses, and all the front line people who worked tirelessly to keep us safe. The scientists who found these miracle vaccines. I will think about all the essential workers who stayed on the job and did what they had to do. I will think about the children who lost over a year of school, friends, sports, social events, and even celebrating their graduations. People who put off weddings, and other celebrations which had an impact on my business.
I will think about all the businesses that suffered, and the ones who are permanently gone.
