Elder Americans still have challenges in this pandemic. (“Survey: Many vaccinated Minnesota elders still avoid grandkids, public spaces, exercise” by Frederick Melo, Duluth News Tribune, Oct. 17). The only way to make all Americans safe is to battle this pandemic globally. We can do our part to put forward this compassionate work by calling the White House at 202-456-1111 and ask President Biden to lead the way out of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Our calls can be the caring beginning of a better country and world. Let’s give all seniors an opportunity to be back to normal with friends, family, and joyful times with grandkids.
