Singer Jeremih is reportedly doing better since leaving the ICU this past weekend due to a COVID-19 related illness. A message confirmed by his DJ T. Taylor from a recent Instagram story post that states Jeremih was praising God for his recovery, and the information trended heavily on Twitter. We are glad he is a COVID-19 survivor. This COVID-19 Crisis is a wake-up call.
On a previous blog post (https://www.wersurvivors.com/corona-virus-covid-19) back in March. For instance, I defined the COVID-19 dangers in a setting that gave a clear picture of the terror lurking our way. We all have a job not to be reckless. Specifically, stay healthy and mindful of our safety.

African-Americans can no longer allow our families to sit down and die. Black Lives Matter must continue fighting against police brutality by marching the streets with masks and following all social distancing protocols.
In other words, learn, read, and listen to our local elected officials while keeping your families safe. The changing times are above all filled with differences we all need to step up and maintain, think good thoughts, use time wisely, practice self-care, and whenever possible, do positive things around the house to keep spirits high. Moreover, call/text a loved one, friend, or special one to say, “How are you doing? Lastly, let’s shoutout those who tested positive and won.
