RIP Nelson Elmer George

A year ago today COVID-19 claimed my father's life, one of the many elders we've lost to this virus

A year ago at this time my father was slowly being killed by Covid-19.

Just earlier this week I received my second Covid-19 vaccine shot.

A year ago the planet was in turmoil. Fear and ignorance reigned supreme.

This week there is hope, though fear and ignorance still has a grip on so many.

I published a piece on Medium about my father and our relationship, perhaps the saddest, deepest and most important pieces of writing I’ve ever done.

What a twelve months its been.
