While Thousands Protested Freely, My Grandmother Died Alone During Lockdown

Less than a dozen-and-a-half of us stood six feet apart in a semicircle surrounding my grandmother’s casket as the protesting masses roared across the nation and hundreds attended the funeral of an ordinary man no more accomplished than our dearly beloved. One by one, the shedding tears fell beneath our masks.”  Mia Cathell, “While Thousands Protested Freely, My Grandmother Died Alone During Lockdown,” The Federalist, 6/19/2020.
