Titanics-band

There’s a Bible verse that says: Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.”

Death toll: probably higher | “Across the United States, even as coronavirus deaths are being recorded in terrifying numbers — many hundreds each day — the true death toll is likely much higher.” – The New York Times
