Once a week, my neighbors come out at 7pm, while maintaining social distance, to bang pots and pans to make noise at the shift change for the hospital a few blocks away. It is a way to honor and thank those on the front lines, but also a great way to connect our community during this time. Photo © D’amy Steward, 2020.
