The pandemic continues to rage worldwide – with the loss of human life in the U.S. alone surpassing 800,000 in less than 24 months.
But the heroism and devotion of U.S. healthcare workers stand strong. Despite burnout. Despite assaults by virus-deniers, anti-maskers, anti-vaxxers. Despite purveyors of misinformation that have hobbled our nation’s recovery.
In this anthology, 26 poets and essayists—physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, private caregivers, holistic practitioners, medical school students, and a hospital chaplain—share their personal experiences tending to patients, dealing with loss, uncertainty, grief, and isolation, surviving in a world turned topsy-turvy by a once-in-a-century pandemic. Surviving through resilience, selflessness, and the eternal flame of hope.
