When I pray, it usually goes something like this: “Dear Lord, give me the strength and courage to overcome the adversity I now face.” Today, I will pray for something very specific: A coronavirus vaccine ... the sooner the better.

While I give Gov. Eric Holcomb and his team much credit for their response and transparency, my take on President Trump is that he’s mailed it in. On one hand, Trump said, “This is worse than Pearl Harbor. This is worse than the World Trade Center. There has never been an attack like this.” On the other, he essentially said it was up to individuals and states to cope with the virus and there will be lives lost. “We have to be warriors,” he said. “We can’t keep our country closed down for years.”
