In Their Remembrance: It is Time for a Just COVID Relief, a Smooth Transition, and a Moral Agenda Now
On Monday, November 23, The West Virginia Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival will host a Moral Monday caravan at our statehouse to mourn the more than 585 West Virginians who have died from COVID-19, demand a smooth and open transition of power and lift up the moral policies we need immediately and in the first days of the new administration. Join us in this public act of mourning and remembrance.
Pam Garrison, a self-employed housekeeper takes care of an elderly lady who lives up a holler nearby where many relatives live also. Her 80-year old male relative was receiving hospice care and contracted COVID-19 from his caretaker. He passed away shortly after it was confirmed. A week after his funeral, his wife’s COVID-19 was confirmed and she passed away. They both had been ill, but each contracted COVID-19 which killed them. That was a shock. Pamela is here because of the closeness of the family members to show her respect for their loss.
Ending the suffering of our families and communities is a moral mandate to all who are tasked with governance now and in the new year. Calls for cooperation cannot compromise with injustice.
