The truth is, as much as has been done by governments and leaders to save lives, much more could’ve been done and sooner – and wasn’t, or was done too late. Whether there will ever be any kind of reckoning for the irresponsible and cavalier way our lives were risked, endangered or bargained away, is unclear to me at this time. I hope so.

Not that it will undo any of the grievous losses many have endured, assuage the anguish of those who mourn, or soothe the trauma of those affected for life – or ease the untold economic struggles that await all of us post this disaster’s end – but it would be most satisfying to witness.
