How Are You Managing Your Lack of Grief?

Nearly 100,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. Why doesn’t it feel like it?

But there’s something about seeing it in black and white 8-point font that makes all of this so much more real.

This is merely 1,000 victims — their lifetimes summed up by their city of residence and four-to-six-word epitaphs. There are 100 more front pages to be filled with the names of the dead. It is a tribute that is at once both stirring and sobering, especially when you realize that almost none of these people or their families were allowed the luxury of a proper funeral.
