The last few weeks have been so exhausting: violent assault on the Capital, second impeachment of then-occupant of the White House for inciting the violence, and finally the inauguration of our new President and Vice President.

Throughout the broadcast of the inauguration, there was repeated mention of the over 400,000 Americans who have already died of Covid-19. There was finally acknowledgement of it, and intentional mourning for them. There was a memorial and national mourning.
