The United States is now officially the stupidest country in the world, with the highest rate of Coronavirus infections of any developed country in the world and with no letup in sight.

We can say it is not our fault, blame each other and hide in conspiracy theories; or we can step up to the plate, forget about our differences and work together to fix this mess.

Let’s start by listening to the people who can really help, our professional scientists, doctors and politicians that actually do know what they are talking about. We can choose to be a part of the solution.

Americans can do anything we put our minds to. I know that by taking this threat seriously and working together we can — and will — pull ourselves out of this mess.
