A moment of silence - 500,000 American lives lost to COVID-19

A moment of silence - 500,000 American lives lost to COVID-19

The U.S. death toll from the coronavirus topped 500,000 on Sunday. This number of deaths represents the population of Atlanta or Sacramento. President Biden ordered the flag of the United States to half-staff from February 22-26, 2021 in honor of the 500,000 Americans lost to COVID-19. He is also encouraging Americans to join in a moment of silence at sunset. The Presidential proclamation reads, in part: 

As of this week during the dark winter of the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 500,000 Americans have now died from the virus. That is more Americans who have died in a single year of this pandemic than in World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War combined. On this solemn occasion, we reflect on their loss and on their loved ones left behind. We, as a Nation, must remember them so we can begin to heal, to unite, and find purpose as one Nation to defeat this pandemic. Read the full proclamation - https://flagsexpress.com/flags-half-staff/february-2226-2021-halfstaff-alert-entire-united-states/
