I designed this heart to give myself and others a visual way to comprehend the numbers reported on a daily basis of the COVID-19 deaths. This image of hearts within the larger Heart represent 2,000 Hearts & Souls. Today marks a horrific tally of Hearts & Souls lost to Covid-19. It’s almost incomprehensible to visual this heart multiplied by 100, but as of September 19, 2020 we have lost 200,000+ Hearts & Souls just in the United States. My heart breaks for the grief all these families are enduring.
I much prefer to visualize this image as if all the hearts are TREES PLANTED in the MEMORY of those deaths.
Leaving this legacy for their families is a beautiful way to honor those who have suffered and passed away during this pandemic. Let’s PLANT TREES in honor of lives lost, with a living breathing gift of nature that will live on for many years to come in their memory.
