Wall of Soldiers

The coronavirus has infected the crew of the US Navy aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt in Guam. The US Army is closing boot camps across the country. These are two clear examples of how not having universal health care can affect our nation’s defense. It protects those who protect us. In ancient Greece, a visitor to Sparta asked a local why Sparta had no walls. He said that Sparta was guarded by a wall of soldiers. A country is only as strong as the people who defend it. If we can fight disease, we can fight anything.

Ken Auletta wrote “A Woman’s Place” about Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg.
