Mourning in America

It’s mourning again in America. 

Today, more men and women will die from the coronavirus than ever before in our country’s history . 

With levels of infection higher than they have been since the pandemic began, nearly 190,000 Americans will be diagnosed with COVID-19, more than at any time in the past ten months. 

This afternoon, thousands of people will lose a loved one, and with the virus continuing to spread they can look forward with fear to the future. 

It’s mourning again in America, and under the leadership of President Trump, our country is sicker, and weaker, and in tatters. 

Why would we ever want this to continue for another two months?

Inspired by President Reagan’s 1984 television ad and a May 2020 ad from the Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump GOP group.
