Biden says, ‘We’re at war with a virus, not with one another’, during Thanksgiving address,
“President-elect Joe Biden delivered a Thanksgiving address Wednesday in which he acknowledged the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and the political strife that have both taken hold of the country, but pledged that better days lie ahead.”
“We’ve fought nearly a year-long battle with a virus that has devastated this nation. It’s brought us pain and loss and frustration and has cost so many lives, 260,000 Americans and counting,” Biden said in a speech delivered in Wilmington, Del. “It’s divided us, angered us, set us against one another. I know the country has grown weary of the fight, but we need to remember: We’re at war with a virus, not with one another, not with each other,” Yahoonews reports.
As much of the nation prepared to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, Biden acknowledged the sacrifice involved as Americans are asked to refrain from attending large gatherings. This year we’re asking Americans to forgo so many of the traditions that have long made this holiday … so special,” Biden said.”
