Flag at half-staffUnited States flags are at half-staff until sunset Monday to mark a tragic milestone: 1 million American lives lost to COVID-19. “One million empty chairs around the dinner table. Each an irreplaceable loss. Each leaving behind a family, a community and a nation forever changed because of this pandemic,” President Biden said in ordering the tribute. “As a nation, we must not grow numb to such sorrow. To heal, we must remember. We must remain vigilant against this pandemic and do everything we can to save as many lives as possible.”
