Specific picture descriptions: Photos above with "i" icons next to the bracketed sequence numbers (e.g. " ") are described as follows:
"This crisis has made clear that schools are places for so much more than just learning. Students rely on us for food, books, counseling, technology, community, acknowledgement, safety, and love."
"I'm very worried for my fellow workers and volunteers, as well as the many patients I've treated and transported since the severity of the pandemic had escalated. What worries me most, however, are the people that need to be patients, but will refuse care because they can't afford a hospital visit, or to leave work for the sake of their family. My fellow workers in the healthcare field, and all of the workers that keep our society running and alive in our stores, school systems, municipal systems, and all other fields, are the most vulnerable to the virus, and it's time we took better care of the people we need most."
Elizabeth, Veterinary Administration
"None of us, the essential workers, are heroes. We are hostages. I and my coworkers are finding that everyone has become a heightened version of themselves in light of this pandemic. Are you usually anxious? Now you're a nervous wreck. Are you usually kind? Now you're especially lovely, and always seem to have something nice to say. Are you usually a little shady, rude, or racist? Now you're our worst nightmare. Everyone's true colours are showing, and the saddest thing is to find out who are the "We're all going to die eventually, so who cares when?" people. It is already so difficult to get up every day knowing that my only two choices are to risk death by Covid-19 or risk death by starvation and homelessness, and it wrecks me to be surrounded by people who shrug their shoulders and tell me "That's a choice *YOU* have to make, so stop complaining once you pick one."
Jim, Combat Veteran
"As a marine officer in combat, young men were killed following my orders. Hundreds of sailors on one ship recently got the virus -- and their captain was fired for asking for help. Military life by nature is physically close and demanding. We will die in great numbers -- as we are called up to do any work that no one else can or will do. Members of the military are not disposable. Provide us with the protection we need. Do not ask us to make the lives of human beings in Venezuela, Iran, Iraq, Africa, etc. Even more miserable. We are one family."
"I was a child refugee from Vietnam and I grew up to write a screenplay about Lucy and Albert Parsons & the Chicago anarchists who started May Day! I was recently interviewed for a documentary that Noam Chomsky is also in and I stand with essential workers."

Multi Column: Number of columns of thumbnails to appear per page (normally defaults to 3):
Signage: You'll see a lot of signs in this group. Eventually, I'll type the text of the signs into the subject description and get rid of the signs themselves. This is pretty slow and tedious work though.
2020 photos: The year is too new to have anything to report. The Covid-19 disaster cut off most events here in DC after March 11 and even cut off going outside after awhile. Here's hoping honesty and integrity wins for a change this November.
Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
