As so many of us are relieved to learn of the upcoming COVID-19 vaccine, which will come to be used less than a year after the inception of the necessary research, we are so grateful and give immense thanks during this holiday season.
What we should now not forget is: There is no vaccine for racism.
The same self-concern that led our government and citizens to focus on COVID-19 has to apply to changing the racist/prejudiced tone that permeates our country.
It is time to save ourselves and our democracy for the generations to come. We will not get this accomplished for our generation, but we must start!
Our community can lead as an example by melding together and learning about one another while working on common causes and ideas. I, for one, will get behind pushing this effort forward. Let’s develop suggestions right here through the Express News Group newspapers.
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy holiday … stay safe!
