Words cannot describe how horrendous this day was for the USA because of what was going to happen when the pandemic hit. Probably worse than September 11, 2001.

The craziest days of our lives, from Sarah Palin rapping in a bear costume on a reality TV show, Tom Hanks and his wife contracting COVID, and Harvey Weinstein's sentencing, and a certain speech following the bear singing reality show.

It all felt so scary at the time. The anxiety I felt when countries started closing down.

One of those days that turned into a bummer, just hours after cheering for the Harvey Weinstein verdict and within minutes of laughing at Sarah Palin on The Masked Singer.
