There are many words that can describe the beautiful people of Newark NJ, and its surrounding areas, but today we choose the word, heroes. When the going gets tough Newark has been known to be very resilient and it’s resiliency brings us back to that noun, heroes.
I’m So Newark, in its effort to continue capturing positive images from in and around Newark, presents this series where we focus on ‘Masked Heroes’ risking their own safety during this pandemic, Covid-19 , to serve others, especially our Seniors, and families in need during this pandemic. We’re talking about heroes who could not sit at home watching but made a decision to give back to their community. They are giving back by donating one of the most precious commodities on earth, time.
While capturing these images we could not help but think that these masked heroes have evidently taken on this task with no desire of recognition, by donning their mask. We definitely appreciate the audacity of such noble morality in times like these.
We would also like to thank Express Newark for supporting the production of this series with it’s 3rd Space Grant.
