A plea for us to acknowledge our collective pain and grief

This is a plea for us, for just a minute or so, to put aside comments like:

“Well, why didn’t they wear masks? They deserve it!” Or

“Well, why didn’t they exercise or take care of their health before?”

“This makes us look bad in front of our neighbors.”

“Well, those kinds of people are always like that.”

“India is my country and all Indians are my brothers and sisters. I love my country and its rich and varied heritage.”
