The Virus as 2020 Comes to a Close

The draft has ended for our youth. It did so in the early 70s. Young men have a choice as to whether they are willing to take on a soldier’s risks.

At the same time a scourge that has killed more Americans than the Second World War or Vietnam War seems to be gaining momentum. It’s lethality is weighted towards the elderly or other end of the populace.

I missed Vietnam because the doctor draft ended shortly before I was to take my draft physical. But now, short of vaccination, there is another draft my generation faces. This time there is an invisible enemy that does its own drafting.

My prayer for you, particularly the elderly, is that good health would characterize your life until the vaccine arrives at your doorstep.
