In the face of tragedy, the easiest thing to do is to turn away. To stay in your lane. To become desensitized by big numbers, daily statistics, and updated forecasts.
But we all know, deep down, that we shouldn't accept this new world as "normal." We know that we need to remember.
To remember that this tragedy is about people, not politics. To remember the heroic sacrifices that normal people make every day to keep us safe. To remember that COVID-19 has placed the most vulnerable — like the orphaned and abused youth that Save the Children supports — at even greater risk.
It's easier to turn away. But we have to remember.
Our humanity depends on it.
