One year ago today, Anne Laurie posted her first regular daily update post about covid.
How many of us owe a debt of gratitude to Anne Laurie? Probably most of us.
I see many expressions of thanks in the comments, both for Anne Laurie herself and for her daily updates. Still, one year of coronavirus posts – every single day, except perhaps one – is a herculean feat and an amazing accomplishment, definitely something to commemorate.
I checked in with Anne Laurie before writing this, and as usual, she was the voice of wisdom. She suggested that we make this post not just a thank-you to her, but also a chance to vent about our year with coronavirus.
It is my fervent hope that long before a year from now, daily covid posts will no longer be necessary to our safety and well-being.
On this, our paper anniversary of daily coronavirus posts, I hope you will join me in thanking Anne Laurie for her daily labor of love. Anne Laurie, please accept this “paper” gift as a token of our great affection for you and of our enduring appreciation of your work to keep us better informed than most of our fellow citizens.
