Situational Analysis – March 12, 2021

Happy Friday. Today marks the 18th anniversary of Elizabeth Smart being found in Salt Lake City. Through this traumatic experience, Elizabeth has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs, and National legislation. Elizabeth triumphantly testified before her captor and the world about the very private nightmare she suffered during her abduction, which led to conviction. The Founder of the “Elizabeth Smart Foundation”, Elizabeth has also helped promote The National AMBER Alert, The Adam Walsh Child Protection & Safety Act and other safety legislation to help prevent abductions.

Happy 74th birthday to Senator Mitt Romney today. Maybe he can find time to get a birthday hotdog.

And, we move to Daylight Savings Time this weekend. Don’t forget to “spring ahead” on Sunday. 

If you only have time for one thing: Take a minute to check out this timeline of the pandemic – every point of light on the animated map is a life lost to COVID-19 over the last year, some 525,000 nationally, 2000 in Utah. There is also a written summary of how this disease – and our response – unfolded. Sobering.
