DAYS TO REMEMBER
There are few dates to be forever saved in our collective memories than
those scenes from yesterday, December 13, 2020, when the Pfizer vaccine
began to be distributed in the United States.
Today is the day when the electoral college is supposed to confirm the
election of the latest President of our nation. But I have already
scratched 12/13/2020 on the inside of a bureau drawer I open often (the one
where I store my clean underwear) and like the scene where General MacArthur
was filmed taking the Japanese surrender aboard the battleship Missouri
(September 2, 1945), there are now two dates of equal promise of a bit more
time for me among you.
Yes, I realize that I will have to wait my turn and it probably is not going
to come for some weeks but the promise of this truly miraculous thing to
come to so many who need it, not to mention the care givers who are so
deserving of reward, is truly exciting.
