As of Wednesday, May 6th, 130,593 New Jersey residents have been diagnosed positive with COVID-19. 8,244 people lost their lives.
Governor Murphy shared on his Twitter, “We’ve lost more New Jerseyans to coronavirus than we lost in World War I, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War COMBINED. When we say we’re in a war, we mean it. This is literally a war.”
In Hudson County, 870 people have passed away from this horrific virus.
And while we cheer nightly for our healthcare heroes at 7:00PM and play songs to amp them up and share our gratitude, we cannot forget the hundreds that have died both locally, regionally, and nationally. They are mothers, fathers. sisters, brothers, wives, husbands, friends, loved ones — the list goes on. and they must not be forgotten.
We’ve created a virtual Moment of Silence + Candlelight Vigil for Wednesday, May 6th at 8:30PM — to honor those lives lost.
No matter where you live, whether it be Hoboken, Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, or anywhere else in the USA, join us in lighting a candle at your window or balcony. and participate in a moment of silence this Wednesday. We will also be putting it on our IG Live @thehobokengirl to amplify. You can also RSVP here on Facebook.
It’s more important than ever to come together, even though we are apart.
Please spread the word.
