The pandemic and its planet-wide devastation continue. So it's hard to remember sometimes that other epidemics exist alongside it, cutting down lives and searing families forever in the process.
The dead should be remembered. They are still mourned by those who loved them. And a community that is somehow less without them.
These are some of their names. These are some of their faces.
Look close. But know this: Epidemics, like pandemics, morph. Now, 3 of 4 people who die from overdose die because of fentanyl.
