Two women brawling over a six-pack
of toilet paper.
California teen donating sanitation kits
to the homeless

Bullies harassing Chinese-Americans
with “Chinese Flu” racism.
Isolated Italians singing to
each other on balconies

Spring Breakers declaring their right
to “Party On.”
Healthcare workers revealing bruised faces
from long shifts in protective masks

New Yorkers flying to Florida
to avoid lockdown.
Florida Governor threatening to
quarantine New Yorkers at airports

exposing gaps and lack of leadership.
Farm workers, truck drivers, food deliverers
being hailed the strongest links in the food chain
