We are indeed blessed.  There have been so many blessings for so many of us rainers during this time.   And you're so right - it doesn't compare one tiny bit to 1918 or WWII.......by a long long shot.

Thanks for posting this. Any deaths are tragic and it really doesn't matter to me whether we have more or less deaths than a particular period.   That seems like a rabbit hole designed to take away from a different message.   The middle ages and the bubonic plague were no walk in the park either.  Personally, what is important is to remember that we have faced dark times before and we came through.  Humans have heretofore been resilient and I think we can recover from this period too.

I'm just glad history is being recalled. It's been obliterated in our schools. Our young people don't realize it exists.

Good one, Susan... people really do need to remember to put things into perspective. I was born right after WWII in a displaced person's camp in Germany and all my family lived through both world wars in Europe, so it's something that doesn't leave my thought process... but for many now, the world wars are ancient history.

Real history needs to taught again in schools and young people need to be vested in our country again and the main stream media needs to be de-funded. There's no hidin' from those bidin' ill will!

Susan- I truly appreciate this! Love Candice A. Donofrio comment as well. Our young people think that this is the worst thing we -as in the world- has experienced. I know that your numbers are not political but meant to remind us that we are a strong people and have endured and survived before.

More Americans have died from the Covid 19 pandemic than the number of American deaths in WW1.

Americans killed in WW2 = slightly over 400,000

American killed in the Civil Way = both sides = well over 600,000.

The current pandemic figure is 230,316 and infections and deaths are rising.

2020 is not over.

1914-1918 was not worse in terms of American fatalities.

The total deaths world-wide during the two World War is FAR higher.
