The growing coronavirus death toll has left many Americans understandably concerned about not just their health, but also about the future of our country. Now, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro is offering some words of hope.
“I don’t have all the answers,” she admitted during her Saturday night broadcast, according to Fox, “but there are four things I know for sure.
“Number one, we will get through this. Remember, we’re Americans born of a revolution? Fight is in our DNA,” the former New York state judge reminded her viewers.
She went on: “America is at her best when she’s tested. She’s strong, determined and has the mettle to get through anything.”
Pirro: America ‘strong, determined’
Pirro said Saturday that the nation should also remember that “when we get through this, we will be stronger than ever.”
“Economists agree that once this virus plateaus as it has in other countries, our economy will come roaring back,” she said.
“We are finding common ground in unusual places,” the former judge went on to observe, noting the fact that political differences haven’t stopped President Donald Trump from reaching out to those who have previously been some of his most vocal critics.
She declared: “The president has brought together former competitors to fight this together, all focused on America’s common enemy. Companies and workers are volunteering, even though they’re suffering financially.”
Acknowledging the financial and other forms of uncertainty so many are currently facing, Pirro went on to speculate that people may need to call on spiritual help to make it through the crisis.
“We are getting close to our humanity, our faith and our purpose in life. The silence of isolation is deafening,” she explained. “And it is forcing us to think about our purpose. We are social beings. But maybe the silver lining will be the time we have to self examine, reflect and get closer to our creator.”
As she drew her remarks to a close, Pirro asked individuals to do what they could to assist others in need and insisted that an end to the crisis isn’t far off, suggesting, “The darkness of the present will only fade as the brightness of the future is just beyond the horizon.”
Many are hopeful that the anti-malarial drug chloroquine phosphate will become an effective treatment for COVID-19 amid reports of multiple studies that have achieved promising results. Pharmaceutical giant Bayer AG announced last week that it would donate three million tablets of the drug to the federal government, according to Reuters.
