The nation has begun to emerge from the pandemic, the last year having transformed many. For Xavier Salomon it meant becoming a parental figure at 18 yrs old. “He’d rather have nothing and then make sure I have everything," Adriana says. https://t.co/bFCGyBNhVi https://t.co/k1seiuQghF

Nearly 34,000 have died from Covid-19 in NYC. Each death was an event of its own, leaving a hole to fill. I wrote about Xavier and Adriana, two Brooklyn teenagers who lost their mom and are living on their own. It’s a story of hope. https://t.co/bFCGyBNhVi

Dad's beloved class ring. Mom's red sweater. A worn Bible. An old voicemail. I spoke with families who lost loved ones to COVID and what these cherished mementos — sometimes the last things their parents had in their hospital rooms — mean to them now: https://t.co/B5uz8EpaPI

We took a deeper look at who was getting arrested after anti-Asian assaults in NYC. Many had a history of mental health episodes, prior arrests and homelessness, complicating the city’s search for an effective response. w/@AshleyAtTimes @AliWatkins https://t.co/VZMvXAg93y

Six of the victims were women of Korean or Chinese descent. Their lives reflect much of the Asian American experience, where 1st-generation immigrants yearn not for themselves, but for their children. https://t.co/BMmL6pZKqW https://t.co/Zxs8LVqMPa

We took a look at those w/financial ties to spas in the Atlanta shootings. One is an affluent businessman, prominent in the local Taiwanese community. His story and those of the victims illustrate the chasm w/in Asian America. https://t.co/BMmL6pZKqW

She was playful and fun and had a young spirit. Before she became a victim, Hyun Jung Grant was a mother who took her kids to the mall and the aquarium and made kimchi chigae at home. https://t.co/INg8MsjMpg

⬆️This story by @nicole_hong @Jonesieman is smart and revealing, and so frustrating to read, especially today.

This shocking detail: The ONLY person prosecuted for an ANTI-ASIAN hate crime in New York City this year is TAIWANESE. sorry for all the CAPS, but this is astounding.

The heartbreaking truth about anti-Asian attacks: when you can FEEL hate, but it may not be LEGALLY considered racism. "The law is simply not designed to account for many of the ways in which Asian-Americans experience racism." https://t.co/QkN5Twuckz
