Lest we forget: remembering the Spanish Flu

Every year, on November 11th, we pause to remember the sacrifice of all those who gave their lives so that we might enjoy ours in freedom. And rightly so. But something else happened back in 1918: the Spanish Flu. It killed more people than died in that war: for every soldier killed in combat, three died of that “flu”[1]

Calogero explores why, in the middle of our current pandemic, we have forgotten that previous one, and reflects on how following our UU principles is exactly what we need to do as a species to survive such pandemics.
