After a whole year of dealing with the ravages of the pandemic, Dallas takes a step back to remember the fallen and afflicted. Dallas partook in a national prayer for Covid-19 victims according to a CBS 21 DFW article from January 19th. In it they say:
“Skies across North Texas glowed warm amber Tuesday night, Jan 19.
The bells in Dallas’ Thanksgiving Square joined a nationwide chorus.
A National Moment of Prayer led by President-elect Joe Biden’s Inaugural Committee paid tribute to the victims of COVID-19.”
The Dallas skyline was a little different today too. Buildings lit up in the color amber in honor of Covid-19 victims according to a Fox 4 news article from January 20th. In it they say:
“President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris paid tribute to the victims of COVID-19 in a ceremony that took place at the reflecting pool near the Lincoln Memorial.
There were similar tributes across the nation and in North Texas. In Downtown Dallas, the skyline lit up the color of amber in honor of COVID-19 victims.”
With all the division and suffering that went down last year, this year begins with a moment of quiet in honor of those who don’t get to see it.
