            During our shared religious holidays, remember those who are strangers in our land

            Immigrants and refugees already feel isolated. Those feelings are magnified during this pandemic, when the normal rhythms of Easter, Passover and Ramadan are disrupted.

            COVID-19 outbreak should be no surprise

            The politicians responsible for defending against pandemics chose to ignore the warnings and failed to prepare for them

            You’re terrific, Mayor Lightfoot, but now is no time to be getting your hair done

            Your excuse, that you’re in the public eye, is insulting to the rest of us. If we’re all in this together, get in the trenches and work with us. Look like us, a bit disheveled but clean.

            As a first responder, I see the lack of health care in Chicago’s black community every day

            It has taken a pandemic to call attention to health care disparities that force individuals and families to rely on emergency services. This is no way to deliver health care.

            Coronavirus is special challenge for those recovering from substance abuse

            It’s essential that people in recovery continue to connect even in the absence of regular in-person community meetings.

            Finding much to be grateful for, even during a pandemic

            I try to focus on what I have, not on what I am missing. I give thanks for family, friends and good health — and also for washing 上海11选5走势图 and paper towels.

            I have never seen so many people wave, smile and shout hello at me during a bike ride

            Can we learn from the fight against COVID-19 how to work together against climate change?

            COVID-19 brings out America’s real-life heroes

            As a physician, I have heard this phrase multiple times: "Medicine is a calling." Today I fully understand its meaning.

            Hospital heroes include more than doctors and nurses

            We are all healthcare employees. We are all working together on the front lines for each and every patient.

            A wakeup call to be ready next time

            We must stockpile urgent medical supplies to avoid similar delays in the future. It would be a better use of our tax dollars than a military parade.

            Chicago school officials must take bold steps to help families during the coronavirus pandemic

            Lifting the ban on rent control, a no-evictions policy and hiring parents to clean schools are among the steps that the Board of Education can support.

            Pritzker’s leadership during this pandemic deserves our thanks

            We can, and will, overcome this crisis with strong leadership, tough decisions and our willingness to comply.

            Turn off lights, save the birds

            Each spring, billions of migratory birds including thrushes, warblers, and cranes, fly north to summer breeding grounds and are killed by the lights and glass reflections of the buildings they encounter along the way.

            America’s truckers put their lives at risk during this coronavirus pandemic

            Who is protecting the truck drivers who leave their families behind to take care of the American people? Most people don’t stop to think how the groceries get on the shelves.

            Renters who are out of work because of the coronavirus need help to pay for housing

            I’m lucky to still be working, but the state and city must help those who have lost their jobs and their ability to pay rent.

            The coronavirus crisis should make us more mindful of our place on the planet

            In just days, the earth, air and water have been spared tons of pollution. Maybe we can learn something about sustainable living.

            We can’t allow differing political views to keep us from following guidelines for defeating coronavirus

            We must do our part to protect ourselves.

            Were we all living in a bubble before?

            With the threat of the coronavirus, there is uncertainty, foreboding and an unnerving feeling of helplessness. We question our life that went before.

            Much more must be done to slow coronavirus

            Our governor and mayor should ask more questions before it is too late for all of us.

            U.S. response to coronavirus continues to be an epic failure

            We’re playing a brutal game of catch up.

            Called by another name, it’s still gerrymandering

            Gerrymandering isn’t simply diluting a group’s numbers; it also occurs when you concentrate a particular group into as few districts as possible.

            Coronavirus reminds us we’re all connected — so let’s watch out for each other

            We don’t have to act out of fear. We can still think, and we can still act, with compassion and sense.

            The curious inconsistency of bans on games and parades because of the coronavirus

            The South Side St. Patrick’s Day Parade has been called off, but bars still will be open. Am I safer in a packed bar or walking down the middle of Western Avenue?

            Sister Sheila Lyne left Chicago a better city

            She is credited with dramatically increasing funding for AIDS, and she did much more in her nine years as head of the Chicago Department of Public Health.

            Our duty is to help service members living with arthritis

            Arthritis is rampant in our military, affecting one in three veterans. It is the second leading cause of medical discharge from the U.S. Army, second only to battlefield wounds.

            Biden, like Grandpa, steps back in to save the family business

            If Biden is a safe vote, so be it. It’s been about four years since I’ve been able to sleep at night.

            Biden left a generation of college grads buried in debt

            His vicious Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 makes it impossible for people who live under a mountain of college debt to declare bankruptcy.

            The city has one of the highest collection rates in the country上海11选5走势图 at 96%, which has not declined since the elimination of water shut-offs.

            Police shooting on Red Line shouts that Chicago Police culture must change

            It’s mind-boggling that this incident occurred within a day of the city’s announcement that it will redouble public safety efforts on the CTA.

            Kim Foxx’ problem with rich guys trying to buy elections looks pretty selective

            Foxx is offended that one of her opponents for state’s attorney, Bill Conway, is spending his father’s millions of dollars, but she complains not at all about J.B. Pritzker, Mike Bloomberg and George Soros throwing money into races.
