Yesterday, was the one year anniversary of Governor Baker’s declaration of a state of emergency on account of the coronavirus, which is easy to remember because it is also my birthday. That day remains the most recent time I have shaken anybody’s hand. Today is the anniversary of WHO declaring a global pandemic. We have lost 527K+ lives along with countless jobs, milestones, and opportunities for basic human connection. Tonight, President Biden addressed the nation to mark this grim milestone. While I still wish we had handled some things differently, I feel better now than I ever have about the progress we are making, the acknowledgement of what many of us have been feeling, and even a bit better about the sacrifices that have been asked of us. It’s amazing sometimes what a difference the little things can make!
