This is the Los Angeles Memorial Cemetery

If you have ever driven through West Los Angeles you have probably seen the National Cemetery there. It is a very large cemetery where military from the Mexican American War through to Afghanistan have been buried.


There are a lot of graves. It is a sad but moving tribute.

If you could walk and read the names of every dead soldier, it would take you days. 


And, if you read the name of every single soldier, it would not equal one half of the people that have been killed by Covid-19.

Not

one

half.


Trump's response to the Covid outbreak was callous when he said "It is what it is." In a rally 2 days ago, Trump said, "Almost no one dies of Covid."

Almost no one. More than twice as many as the 90,000 US soldiers buried in the Los Angeles Cemetery. Almost. No. One!
