I didn’t know of Nick Cordero 95 days ago but quickly, I found myself praying for him every night. His wife Amanda shared her experience to make it real for us. My heart is breaking for her & the thousands who have gone through the same thing. We have to protect each other.

I am so so sad, as are we all, about Nick Cordero. This shit did not need to happen. We didn’t have to have this as our reality. Rid this country of this plague administration. Stay to heal. Prevent the next one.
