DC cathedral bell tolls to mark 700,000 COVID deaths in the USA

As our nation marks 700,000 lives lost to the COVID-19 pandemic, Washington National Cathedral will toll its mourning bell 700 times -- once for every 1,000 dead -- on Tuesday, October 5 starting at 5 pm ET. We toll this 12-ton bell for every funeral held at the Cathedral. Funerals mourn the loss, but they also celebrate the lives of our loved ones, and point us to the hope of resurrection. This gesture cannot replace the lives lost, but we hope it will help each American mourn the toll of this pandemic.

The white flags at the Washington Memorial are are planted in memory of all the lives that have passed on due to Covid 19.

Hi Jo
Yes, gestures and words will not replace those who are sleeping, but it's all we have left to give but it comes straight from the heart. I'm so sorry to hear this. God help us all.
