Vandalism of memorial to victim’s

It was disheartening to see the vandalism to the memorial for the COVID-19 victim’s by the protester’s this weekend. Most of those crosses were for veterans who died from this virus – men who served their country honorably and deserved better from the rabble that did this.

Many of the protester’s claim to be patriots and Matt Shea is a veteran, so I am surprised that they let this happen. I already felt terrible that so many veteran’s were dying here in the Veteran’s home and at the VA hospital- supposedly everything that could be done was being done for them to try and save them here.

Please organize these protests so this doesn’t happen again – what if that cross was your father’s?
