WATCH: As death toll rises, Italian Air Force delivers hope
As haunting images from Italy of overcrowded emergency rooms and horror stories of Coronavirus flood social media, the Italian Air Force flew with a message of strength for her people. It was a reminder of pride for the country, unity in the face of grave danger and a prayer of resilience for a country beleaguered by an enemy we haven't seen before: COVID-19.
Set to the backdrop of Giacomo Puccini's 'Nessum Dorma,' performed by Luciano Pavarotti, the flyover is beautiful, chilling and more than anything ... full of hope. Translated to English, the last lyrics of the song are, "I will prevail. I will prevail. I will prevail." You will, Italy. And America will, too.
