The last week has seen nonstop coverage in the news media and on our Twitter feeds about police violence and the protests that have sprung up - across all 50 states - in reaction to the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. Activists and everyday Americans across the nation, and even in my small, rural home county, have taken to the streets to protest the now highly publicized issue of police brutality.
Lately, many have claimed that protests over the death of George Floyd that are turning into riots won’t change anything, and that they disrespect his death.

The voting tactic hinges on the idea that any establishment, centrist nominee forces leftists to choose between the lesser of two evils; two candidates that are slightly different on some policies (mainly social issues), but at the root of it, still support America’s corrupt economic and political system.
Being stuck at home has certainly taken its toll. The feelings of isolation and loneliness, paired with bouts of "cabin fever", have led to a sense of urgency surrounding our return to normalcy. People are eager to get back outside, reconnect with their friends, and return to their normal activities, but that's a reality that may be years away. With a return to normalcy sitting in the distant future, what can we do now to help survive continued isolation?

The lingering question, however, remains: what if no vaccine is widely distributed for two or three years, if at all? The only other viable alternative will be achieving herd immunity via the majority of the population contracting COVID-19 and recovering.
