“The title of this piece is a double-entendre. Partly, it refers to the empty assurances Americans were given that everyone who wants a Covid test can get one. This, of course, has not been the case; people stood in long lines, only to be turned away. But our inner strength, patience, compassion, and belief in our fellow citizens and our government have all been tested to a degree we never thought possible.”
