Letter: Thank you for the support of the COVID-19 Memorial Project
Once the ground thaws, we will be bringing the memorial around the state again for people to see. Hopefully, we will make it to Fargo with the full display which is one flag for every one person who has passed.
Two weeks ago, Fargo hosted the COVID Memorial Project. I wanted to take a moment to thank the Fargo community for all that sent comments to us about the memorial and shared their stories. Thank you.
We appreciate each of you, and your loved ones will not be forgotten. Once the ground thaws, we will be bringing the memorial around the state again for people to see. Hopefully, we will make it to Fargo with the full display which is one flag for every one person who has passed.
For those who stopped each time someone was at the Memorial working and volunteered to help, we do appreciate it. It's not that we didn't want help, it's more that we didn't want to risk infecting anyone because we may have been asymptomatic. Better to be safe than sorry.
Remembering COVID-19 victims one flag at a time in downtown Fargo "We have to do something before it's too late."
Thank you to Fargo City Hall staff for coming through for us on what turned out to be short notice and allowing us to place the Memorial there.
Our numbers have begun to come down. Yesterday for the first time in three months, we posted zero new deaths. That is significant.
Together we can overcome COVID-19 and make it a part of history.
