Tomorrow is a day for giving thanks. For me, today is a day of remembrance. It was one year ago today that my father, Mike Kooyman, passed away. He was 91 years old. My mom, Ruth Kooyman, passed away early in 2019. She was 84 years old.

Both of my parents were first generation Americans. My grandparents came to the United states in the 1920s right after World War I and worked hard to purchase their homes despite the Great Depression. They persevered to achieve and live a better life as Americans. Don’t let the headlines that the mainstream media paints deter you from interacting with the great world of opportunity around us.

In both this morning’s Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, each has a a set of buried articles that report:

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is about to shorten the lock-down time of those testing active from 14-days to eight to ten days. COVID-19 is not staying active as long as it did in the past

This column may play an enhanced role given mainstream media’s new post-election lack of interest in tracking the daily COVID-19 counts. As of this morning, CNN, MSNBC, FOX News, CNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and yes, even the local metro rag, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution have all abandoned posting COVID-19 numbers updates on their home-pages — even foregoing news stories about the record-breaking counts posting each day! God love CNN, at least a small bullet in the news text does cite that the new, higher COVID-19 posts. I guess the editors who were pouring over those numbers and the graphic designers using those bold colors to magnify the visual impact on the websites are now back taking their Ritalin.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, the total number of tracked COVID-19 cases in the United States now totals 3.16 percent of the population. The number of tracked active COVID-19 cases represents 0.61 percent of the U.S. population. The number of COVID-19 survivors represents 2.48 percent of the U.S. population.

  • Georgia posted a tremendous spike in active cases today. While there are some increases in the core metro Atlanta counties, the increases are not as radical as in the state as a whole
