    The U.S. has now hit a tragic benchmark in the pandemic, with at least 500,000 Americans losing their lives to COVID-19.

    Also, with sunset remarks and a national moment of silence, President Joe Biden gave a head-on acknowledgement of the country’s once-unimaginable loss — half a million Americans in the COVID-19 pandemic — in striking contrast to the approach of his predecessor.

    As Jackson Proskow reports, many American families are grieving.
