Got my Pfizer booster shot There were no marching bands No one shaking my hand Or patting me on the back. Nor should there be I did it for me and my immunity I did it for us, for the community We’re all in this life-and-death fight And each of us must make it right For lives well lived And no more lost Is why we act and take the jab Victory is what we cry Victory over a persistent enemy The enemy of whispered dreams Of better days and richer lives Not of last gasps in ICUs where Families are banned and last wishes denied So, let’s do our part and be smart About the way forward on these grim days To a new day of hoping and loving And kindness and a union of spirits Proclaiming, “We’re done with this madness” We’re done We’re done And we’ve done it for all of us ©Ron Cooper 2021

This is tremendous and I loved the way you read it out loud to us on LL last week. Very powerful.

Thanks so much Amy, really appreciate that!
You are so right, dad! We all have got to do our part to make this a thing of the past and quickly! Far too many lives have been lost and devastated because of this awful virus! I will always stand by you, I love you dad!
Let’s stick together, dear, there’s so much easier when we can collectively act! Love you too!
