A Nation Divided by Turmoil: Biden's Victory is America's Failure

Another long-winded, incoherent speech fraught with inaccuracies and false accusations.  As the polls have closed and ballots are meticulously being counted across key states, many deign to criminalize Trump for his boisterous proclamations and unorthodox leadership. However, the truth of the matter may be far more sinister than you care to imagine...Biden asserts that he and his party maintain the moral high ground in this tumultuous race for presidency. But do they really? In fact, the vast majority of Southern Democrats vehemently opposed a ban on slavery while the Republican party sought to win their freedom. Indeed, it may appear that times have changed... unless you bother to read the many defamatory statements made throughout Biden's long and storied political career -- statements targeting both women and African Americans. Although to be safe, let's assume his bigotry extended far beyond that which we've covered. So as it now seems more certain than ever that we'

Illinois's Most Infected Neighborhood is Chicago's West Ridge Community

If you're one of the 72,000+ residents living within the West Ridge neighborhood of Chicago, you might be best served by an extended period of self-imposed isolation from the surrounding community...

To date, there are 272 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the area -- and these are only the infections we're currently aware of. Many children and healthy individuals may have an asymptomatic presentation of the virus, making it highly difficult to separate them from the uninfected. 

Although it's unclear what initially caused the outbreak in West Ridge, a teacher and community activist, Halle Quezada, has been referencing data provided by the IDPH to determine the event's catalyst.

Apart from poring over medical data, she's also established a local volunteer group of roughly 50 individuals to offer mutual support during the government-mandated quarantine. "I put together a website and request for help forms in different languages."

Despite public requests from residents and business owners, the local government is overburdened in dealing with the extensive death toll across the state. Even at this comparatively early stage in the virus's spread, 528 people have died due to COVID-19 in Chicago, with the number of infected individuals totaling a minimum of 16,422.

And in spite of the morbid picture this presents, a faint glimmer of hope shimmers on the horizon in Chicago when reflecting upon current numbers...

As the director of the Illinois Department of Public health said while speaking out to a concerned public, "The rate at which they're increasing is less, and that is a good sign." He paused to reflect on the importance of this data before adding "We're not seeing the exponential growth we were seeing before."

To any of my readers who reside within this afflicted neighborhood, I offer my sincerest hope for a swift end to your tragedy. Please stay indoors whenever possible.
