A friend recently posted that she wishes we were all not living through a historic event. I think we all feel the same way. I have friends and family members in mourning, without communal comfort. I have friends without jobs, without child care. I see people on the medical frontlines putting their lives in danger for the greater well being. This pandemic amplifies inequalities in our city and shows the cracks in the systems that were barely working before. I maintain that we need to build a community around the vision of a sustainable, resilient, and equitable New York. We need to hold fast to that vision through this, and we must work to make sure democracy never falls victim to the virus.
