More bad news...

Someone from my church has died from COVID-19. He was older, had other health issues, but the virus is what ultimately killed him. My church is small. I don't like the thought of losing any members.

And also, when we're allowed to have services in the building again, we won't be able to have choir. It's impossible to sing in a mask, and singers really spread germs farther than speakers. We may not be able to sing for a whole year. I can't stand it. I've missed so much choir in the past two years because I was sick. I hate not being able to sing. And I can't imagine Christmas services without music. It may come to that.

Meanwhile, the death toll in the U.S. is 72,000+. If everything starts opening right now, there are projections that it could be a quarter of a million before the year is over. Fuck.
