dead number over
two hundred thousand – each one
is one to someone
A quote with many sources but most often attributed to Josef Stalin states;
“A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.“
Reading Jim Harrison last night I ran across this line;
“400 hundred thousand Jews died there, [in the Warsaw Ghetto] a number of dead that is not easily comprehended. Each of the 400,000 was one to somebody.” (emphasis in the original)
Over two hundred thousand have died from covid in the United States.
Two hundred thousand is a number of dead that is not easily comprehended.
Each of the 200,000 is one to somebody.
