Margot Traverso Bruemmer lost her father and her uncle to COVID-19 within the same week. The story has been featured across several news outlets, but getting to speak to Margot, whom I have known for 25 years, and hearing firsthand what it feels like to suffer such tragic loss at the hands of this pandemic, is not only heartbreaking, it is the very definition of essential. I would challenge anyone who says things like, "Why are we living in fear? The death rate is so LOW," to tell that to someone whose family COVID-19 has devastated.

Of course, we laughed. Of course, Margot is a phenomenal, resilient, hero for more reasons than can be written here. I implore you to take a listen to this, and to spread this story as far and as wide as you can.
