Since 1949, the United States has recognized May as Mental Health Awareness Month. Throughout the pandemic, everyone has suffered both slightly while others have suffered greatly. Our country lost 585K Americans to this horrible virus since the pandemic hit. Besides having lost loved ones, people have also lost their jobs, medical benefits at the worst time possible, fell behind on the rent or mortgage and other bills, even played teacher to their kids while trying to their own job if they still had one. Families and friends could not get together because they wanted to keep each other safe and free from this deadly virus. And the stress of all of this has affected everyone…don’t say that it didn’t; no one is that resilient.
