Very much new reporting images. Our medical responders have gone over and above the call of duty for a full year now. They are at risk not only from COVID but also burn out and ultimately PTSD.

Unfortunately, suicide too. We cannot appreciate and thank them enough.

I heard an interview with the doctor on NPR’s Morning Edition today, it’s very compelling.

That is where I learned of it too.

Even though I started in black and white, I am no longer interested in it for my work today. However, the lack of perfection and the grittiness work well here. I guess we have to go to Instagram to see more.

Even with all the reports from medical practitioners and former patients, there are many people who claim that COVID is a hoax, a conspiracy, and that it was planned by the rich and/or powerful. I am so proud and respectful of the care givers, the medical teams and the responders who have given so much and expect nothing in return for their dedication, care, compassion, time and love of their fellow humans. God bless them each and everyone.

When you think of all the people who have died through vivid how can anyone think it is a hoax, good news 16,500,000 people have been vaccinated in the UK. So glad we left the EU after the scandal of their vaccination program.

I think you mean COVID and not vivid. We wish you the best in the UK.
