Americans no longer feel safe. Our citizens are traumatized. Our economy is paralyzed, our markets in free fall. Our educational system has been destabilized. Our cultural institutions have shuttered. Our professional and collegiate sports organizations ‎have suspended play. And our health care system is on the verge of buckling under the avalanche of patients who will soon need emergency medical care and resources that do not exist. Hope and optimism, hallmarks of our nation throughout its history, are now in scarce supply. “The Great Coronavirus Pandemic” has managed to do what no foe has ever accomplished: rob our country of its optimism, its swagger, its seemingly limitless potential to solve every problem it has faced, no matter its complexity.

Every presidential administration has one responsibility that is sacrosanct and against which it will be judged, both at the ballot box and in the annals of history. Presidents, above all else, are duty bound to protect the health, safety and welfare of our nation’s citizens.
