Our Candlelight Vigil Event
On March 5th, the Letters of HOPE returned to the Lincoln Memorial for a candlelight vigil. This ceremony honored the unsung healthcare and essential heroes that work hard day in and day out for our nation, marking the second anniversary of the beginning of the pandemic. It recognized the survivors of Covid-19 and the journey ahead for those coping with Long-Covid. We were joined by organizations and speakers who represent each of the communities impacted. A candle represented for each thousand lives lost while the Hope Quilt Letters stood tall, displaying images of Heroes mentioned and loved ones passed. While the immediacy of the Covid pandemic is fading for most of the country, every life lost or affected by chronic illness is one too many. There is a long road ahead to healing and recovery. We hope that we can count on building upon our new sense of camaraderie and mutual support to try to make a difference for the future. Want to get involved with the HOPE Quilt?
