Poverty was a lifelong battle for my father. Then he got covid.
Now, as I sit in my living room, fully vaccinated, waiting for my kids to have their turn so we can regain a sense of normalcy, I think of Mexico, India and Brazil, and wonder, Where do we all go from here? Covid-19 has killed countless people, including many who were otherwise strong and healthy. They were just poor. Once again, poverty denied my father a chance.
