In many cases, hospital staff and family members recalled the fear of their patients or loved ones struggling with cove it. I told mom do not be afraid for the Lord is with us I love you and may God bless you keep strong for me mom and she answered me was yes I come. Yes, miss me how what that. With that voice. With fear. Another matriarch of a family may bunches one of her daughters was with her when she died but her husband and another daughter never got the chance. She was scared, she said she called me Nettie. She said Nettie, am I going to die. 

And I said mom, no you're like this fighter, you defy the odds. All the time and you're not going to die. It's horrible to sit there and watch my mom gasp for air as she is dying and when they took out that too. It's horrible. And we can do anything for her warrior last words to me I love you want to come home. But it never happened. 

An ICU nurse in Oklahoma lost her mother and then 3 days later her husband to the virus. Overall you know some grieving for my husband and I realized my mom's gone you know that I'm reading to my mom and me just. And I'm doing this is gone and so the 2 people that would have been so supportive. You know there. Among the 500 almost 500000 loss. Younger Americans who leave their young families behind his arena rose a 42-year-old nurse got cove it and died after giving birth her husband Nick shared a message for her. 

If I get any of that I love you so much. I know that the Lord has you. What I got this I'll take care of the family. Another. Another young mother died from coated after giving birth to a healthy baby boy doctors induced Erica bracero when her condition deteriorated and her brother Michael described her last moments. In the last moments, she was tearing. Does she hear us? 

Sure we all trips. Mon. I don't feel good. I don't feel like myself it's hard to breathe the weekend came along the doctor saw you know shoot she wasn't getting any better they give birth to her son she had normal labor. She gave birth to her son but didn't get to hold him. She gave birth. That's when they put the 2. From there. You know. She just started the claim and it was all my sister wanted. The best for everybody. The ball lives. She is there to go through what she went through god needed her it did. With open arms which. We got less. 

Even as a nation where many have become numb. This astronomical loss I know that these stories of our fellow Americans puncture that armor. It is natural to accumulate over the past year and that's okay. We need to remember the people that we have lost even if we didn't know them personally I know it is hard to hear it from so many of you I know you're tired I know you're tapped out it is been more than a year since the first reported coronavirus case. 

The quarantining the hoping that this would subside only to realize that it went into any time soon the struggling to make ends meet the worrying that if this is the day you might spike a fever or start to cough the juggling your job while you're homeschooling your kids being afraid this year grandparents being afraid to see your grandkids knowing that there's a vaccine that you or your loved ones can't yet get struggling with mental health and for almost 500000 Americans this past year losing their lives this is a collective loss. 

We're taking this moment to acknowledge that. You are not alone. And if you are lucky enough to still have a little fuel in your tank today it is a good day to remind someone in your life that you were there for them.
