Letter: United we stand, divided we fall

Letter to the editor Deseret News

We express gratitude for the united efforts of so many under the leadership of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence in combating the terrible spread of the coronavirus. It is inspiring to see so many doctors, nurses and other health care officials who are helping.

Some called President Trump “racist” for implementing the travel bans and accused him of overreacting. Now they say he was slow to respond. Go figure.

On the contrary, we are grateful for the amazing, quick response. It is inspiring to see how our national and local governments are coordinating the efforts of hundreds from the private sector to produce needed medical supplies. Hospitals have been quickly erected. Naval hospitals are helping in New York and California.

May we each rally behind our duly elected and appointed leaders in following their guidance to help bring an end to all this craziness.

Otherwise, what might be the result of division?
