Politicians spent most of 2020 banning people from large gatherings in an attempt to “flatten the curve.” Millions of Americans fell under lockdown orders and were prevented by threat of fine or imprisonment from taking part in any type of funeral.
Now that has all changed. Media reports are saying that political leaders expect thousands of people to attend George Floyd’s funeral. On top of that, the funeral will take place in not 1 but 3 states. Minnesota, Texas and North Carolina. Political leaders celebrated the decision and Joe Biden was even going to attend. Social distancing is suddenly last week’s news.
